California City is a city incorporated in 1965 in the northern Antelope Valley in Kern County, California, 65mi southwest of Death Valley National Park. Family-friendly places like Trona Pinnacles and Desert Tortoise Natural Area will thrill your kids. Venture out of the city with trips to Trail of 100 Giants (in Ponderosa), Elmer's Bottle Tree Ranch (in Oro Grande) and Maturango Museum (in Ridgecrest). There's lots more to do: see the interesting displays at The California Route 66 Museum, contemplate the long history of Tehachapi Loop, let the river carry you with a rafting and tubing tour, and make a trip to Civic Musical Road.

For reviews, where to stay, more things to do, and other tourist information, you can read our California City trip planner .

In July in California City, expect temperatures between 42°C during the day and 26°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 13th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
