Places We Swim California

#1 New Release in Ecotourism Travel Guides. 

Places We Swim California is a travel guide that explores California's wilderness through swimming, documenting the state's best beaches, hot springs, rivers, lakes, waterfalls, and canyons.

This beautiful book is divided into six distinct regions (Northern California, Sierra Nevada, Gold Country, Central California, Southern California, and The Bay Area) and covers more than 60 swimming locations, from river beaches in Mendocino to mountain lakes in Yosemite Valley, hot springs near Bishop and beaches on the south coast in San Diego. There's also a selection of road trip itineraries that combine favorite swimming spots with other pit stops along the way.

California possesses an incredible range of climates and is home to some of America’s most iconic landscapes. 
Places We Swim California leans into the relationship between swimming, hiking, road trips, and other attractions – nostalgic diners, local breweries and coffee shops, smokey BBQ joints, and picturesque campsites. In many ways, swimming is really the perfect way to discover these places and landscapes.

Some key locations include 
Torrey Pines in San Diego; Big Sur River GorgeMuir Beach in Marin County; Highway 49's Hoyts Crossing on the Yuba River; the Grand Canyon of Tuolumne within Yosemite as well as Wild Willy's Hot Spring in Mammoth Lakes.
