1 8 T here's no other place in the country where you can surf the waves, ski the mountains and hike among the country's tallest trees. For these iconic and diverse experiences, you have to go to California. Many student groups that trek to the Golden State have their sights set on Disney Land and other theme parks. But there's much more than thrill rides to California, whose cultural offerings and natural wonders are second to none. In Southern California, students can learn about civics and history at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, go behind the scenes of Hollywood blockbust- ers on the Warner Brothers Studio Tour and experience a slice of life on an aircraft carrier at the USS Midway Museum in San Diego.
