California tourism update on current wildfire effects
Visit California and its tourism industry partners across the Golden State would like to extend our sincere gratitude this Thanksgiving to the state’s fire service, first responders and the California communities that are banding together in support of regions affected by recent wildfires.
“We are immensely thankful for the heroism of our first responders, and for everyone – across California and around the world – who has shown support for the state during this difficult time,” said Visit California President & CEO Caroline Beteta. “The Golden State’s unwavering spirit has been tested but not broken, in large thanks to the outpouring of California love.”
