My name is Gabriel Jones and my family and I are from Belzoni, Mississippi. I moved to Fort Irwin, CA which is about a 24 hour drive away from home. I have been here for one year and four months. My family seldom comes to visit because of the distance and expenses. Below there are photos of some amazing attractions and a view of my family's experience in the state of California.I recommend you to take your family vacation to the Santa Monica Pier, Universal Studios, the Staples Center, and many more. I have not been everywhere in California because California is a large state. I have traveled many cities within the limits of Barstow, CA to Santa Monica. My favorite thing to do in California is to visit the cities all in one weekend. All of the major attractions are in close proximity.
