This Is the Part of California You Should Visit, Based on Your Zodiac Sign

Ah, The Golden State.

Sure, it's one long stretch of space, but every part is totally different. Heck, we live in California and we still have so much ground to cover.

Whether you're a resident or not, you know (or at least have heard) that it's pretty darn awesome over here. With that, how do you know which part to prioritize for a visit? Allow your zodiac sign to reveal just that below!

Aries (March 21 – April 19): Hollywood

You live a fast-paced lifestyle, Aries. You're ambitious and will stop at nothing to get what you want. Based on your drive and ability to move swiftly, Hollywood is the place for you. Although you live somewhat of a stressful existence, it never really seems to get to you, which is why a chaotic city like Tinseltown suits you best. You'll be able to cover a lot of ground in a little time, and you won't be bothered by all the congestion (and "interesting" personalities!).


Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Santa Barbara

You live a life of luxury, fancy Taurus. But even though you have a taste for the finer things in life, you're also a loyal, reliable person who is somewhat modest underneath it all. This makes Santa Barbara a perfect destination for you. You can stay at the lavish Ritz-Carlton Santa Barbara, Bacara, but spend your days mellowing out either with a stroll through the walkable city, some waves at the beach, or a cold treat from McConnell's Fine Ice Creams. Santa Barbara is every bit upscale, but without the snobbery—sounds like your perfect match!  


Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Oakland

Oakland has come a long way over the last decade—and it's perfect for you, Gemini. As someone who represents two personalities, you'll definitely appreciate the diversity of this Northern California city. You've got the fancy Diamond and Upper Diamond neighborhoods that boast plenty of nice shops and restaurants, and then you've got the more historical, mellower parts with a completely different vibe. Basically, there's something here to match whatever mood you're feeling at the moment.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Ojai

Sensitive little Cancer, it's easy for you to let your emotions take over. That's why the quaint town of Ojai is a must for you. As someone who frequently needs to recharge, Ojai is your go-to for its nature hikes and spirituality. This calm little area is where people go to decompress, charge their energy stones and retreat from chaos.

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22): Beverly Hills

"If you've got it, flaunt it" is your motto, Leo—and where better to strut your stuff than in the flashiest part of California? Whether you stroll the mean streets of Rodeo Drive carrying an imitation Louis Vuitton handbag (no one will notice the difference, right?) or you force the 'rents to chauffeur you around in a BMW loaner, you're sure to turn heads in Beverly Hills. This is the place where you can wear your boldest lip shade and brightest outfit, while blending in with the rest of 'em.


Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22): San Francisco

If there's anyone who appreciates a hard-earned lifestyle, it's you, Virgo. You go above and beyond to get things done, and you get them done well. You'll certainly vibe with the residents and energy of San Francisco. It's the most expensive California city to live in, which means the people who live there work hard to maintain their lifestyle. But, rest assured, it's not all work and no play. Golden Gate City has so much to see, do and taste. You won't be disappointed.


Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22): Malibu

As the peacemaker of the zodiac, Malibu has your name written all over it, Libra. Sure, it may be home to a slew of celebs, but it's really where people retreat when they want to escape the hustle and bustle of greater Los Angeles. The ocean is literally at your fingertips all the way throughout the city, so you can take a relaxing drive down Pacific Coast Highway, or grab a bike and trek up some scenic hills. Much like y0u, there will be no drama to find here!

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21): Mill Valley

Scorpio, you strongly value friendship, but you're also known for your mysterious and closed-off ways. This is why Mill Valley is a perfect fit for you. Located in beautiful Marin County, this small, intimate town will keep you far enough removed from big city life so you can stay secluded if you so choose—but is only 14 miles from San Francisco if you're feeling particularly social and want to explore with friends. Sounds like a win-win to us!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21): Yosemite National Park

Sag, you are as outdoorsy as they come. You can't stand being restrained, and frolicking through this nature lover's playground will not only free your mind, but also fulfill your need to be outside. You can explore various hiking trails, spot wildlife and camp out with the best of 'em.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19): Irvine

Let's face it, Capricorn: You're Mrs. Play-It-Safe. Not that there's anything wrong with your ability to consistently act responsibly, but it just means that the city you visit should probably follow suit. Irvine is perfect because it's safe, beautiful and in the heart of Orange County—but it's very family-oriented, quiet, and things don't stay open late. Coming to this lovely part of The OC means you're a hop, skip and a jump away from Los Angeles, Newport Beach and San Diego, but sans the chaos that can sometimes accompany those areas. Irvine is great because there's a ton of shopping nearby, plenty of prime sushi restaurants to dive into and beautiful parks and areas to explore.


Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18): Palo Alto

Aquarius, you're a deep thinker with an appreciation for strong dialogue and conversation. Palo Alto is perfect for someone like you, due to the fact that many of its residents are Stanford grads or students. This beautiful NorCal town has also been home to huge tech companies, including Apple, Google and Facebook—so to be more clear, its residents are intelligent and inventive, just like you.


Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20): San Diego

Pisces, you are the most selfless sign. You're constantly on a mission to help others, and you're always putting everyone before your own needs. I mean, that in itself says you're deserving of a California vacation! But if you're gonna go for it, may as well somewhere that suits you. This is why we're recommending San Diego. Did you know that the beautiful SoCal city has the 15th highest volunteer rate in the country? So why not do some research and have pre-planned volunteer activities lined up for your visit? Then, once you're done, you can go for a splash in the delicious ocean—because we all know a Pisces loves to swim!
