LANGUAGE English is the de facto national language of the United States, with 82% of the population claiming it as a mother tongue, and some 96% claiming to speak it "well" or "very well". However, no official language exists at the Federal level. There have been several proposals to make English the national language in amendments to immigration reform bills, but none of these bills have become law with the amendment intact.

Dining Avoid "tourist" areas: Restaurants in areas where many tourists go tend to be expensive and their service may be poor to boot. Instead, go where the locals go. Ask shopkeepers, policemen and anyone else you meet where they like to eat. Alternatively, look for the place with the most cars parked around it. Share a meal: If you're away from home, leftovers may go to waste because you can't refrigerate them. Split a meal if portions are large or you aren't very hungry. Big breakfast: This tip will not only help you save money, but it will give you more time for sightseeing, too. Have a big breakfast, skip lunch and have an early dinner.
Activities Take advantage of free activities as much as you can.Concerts: Not every concert is as expensive as the Rolling Stones at Staples Center. Many California cities boast free concerts, and free doesn't mean second-rate. Look for long-standing series such as San Francisco's Stern Grove or Strictly Bluegrass Festival, the San Jose Jazz Festival (almost free at $5 per person) or Friday night jazz concerts at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Check local papers when you arrive, or ask around.
CONTD….. Free Museum Days: Many museums offer free admission a few days a month, and Los Angeles' Getty Center is always free. Films: Many California communities offer free movies in the park during the summer. Bring your blanket and join the locals.
CONTD…… The WEATHER CONDITIONS ARE FAVOURABLE AND PARTLY CLOUDY. Makes a great destination to enjoy your trip
