About Us

California is a big state, stretching from desert to mountains to the Pacific Ocean. There is so much to see and do in this state, most of it outdoors. SB People’s Guide is just the website you need to plan your adventures in California’s cities and wilderness.


The Guide is designed to make your life easy. It is divided into sections:

  • regions, geographical subdivisions such as Central Valley, San Diego County, and Central Coast
  • cities, over 100 cities have their own pages with lists of things to do, museums, parks
  • a section called things to do, with pages devoted to beaches, national parks, camping, surfing, and entertainment
  • dozens of podcasts and videos


Let’s take a look at a few of the regions.

  • Central Valley – California’s agricultural heart, the 400-mile long valley stretching from Stockton to Bakersfield, has hundreds of miles of country roads, leading to small towns past farms and vineyards.
  • The North Coast – The shoreline is wild and rocky, often foggy, excellent for photography. The majestic trees of Redwood National Park and Mendocino National Forest shade hiking and biking trails.
  • San Diego County – From Mexico almost all the way to Los Angeles, the beaches never stop – just like the nightlife and entertainment in San Diego.


Going on to the cities.

  • Visalia – A quiet, picturesque town, Visalia is on the Central Valley’s edge and at the gateway to Sequoia National Park. The city has a long history, best explained by the walking tour of downtown.
  • Eureka – This small town is still a commercial seaport, where the fishing industry is an integral part of the economy. And beautifully restored Victorian mansions look down on the harbor from the heights.
  • Half Moon Bay – Less than an hour south of San Francisco, this sleepy little town is known worldwide for the monster waves crashing in on its coast. Surfing is a part of life in Half Moon Bay. But the city has a lot more to offer, and the Guide will lay it all out for you.


The SB People’s Guide will lead you through the whole California experience, from aquariums to wine. Their well-designed website will make planning your trip comfortable.
