    California is one of the most visited states in the nation Hassan Whiteside Heat Jersey , and for good reason. With it's great weather, and abundant natural and man-made attractions, it's no wonder tourists flock to this west coast state.

    One of the top reasons for visiting California is simply the land itself. Obviously, miles and miles of beautiful beaches draw thousands of visitors each year. Looking more inland, consider the Redwood State and National Parks. Who hasn't seen pictures of people looking miniature when surrounded by super-sized ferns and trees of unreal size--up to 350 ft, and not wanted to go there? Beyond the Redwoods Dion Waiters Heat Jersey , Yosemite National Park is said to be unmatched anywhere in the world for natural beauty. With 3 of the highest waterfalls on earth, the biggest granite monolith anywhere, and acres and acres of vast wilderness, Yosemite is a big draw for visitors from around the world. Moving toward the Nevada border, visitors flock to Lake Tahoe, one of the most magnificent bodies of fresh water. It holds almost 40 trillion gallons of water Dwyane Wade Heat Jersey , making it the largest alpine lake in North America. Lake Tahoe's water is 99.9 percent pure; it's so clear that a white 10 inch dinner plate is visible even when submerged 75 feet.

    California's climate is another great reason so many people visit the state. With an average of 354 days of sunshine a year, the weather is generally warm and dry year round in California. Along the southern coast, sea breezes keep the temperature lower in the summer and warmer in the winter than places more inland where the climate is high desert. Along the central and northern coast, average temperatures range from low 40s to mid 50s for lows and mid 50s to low 70s for highs.

    If you're looking for something more high minded to do, California has over a thousand registered historical and art sites to visit. In San Diego, Mission San Diego de Alcala Alonzo Mourning Heat Jersey , the first mission built in California, still functions as an active Catholic parish and is a beautiful place to explore and learn about history. Other historic missions dot the state. The California State Railroad museum in Sacramento is a popular stop for visitors. At one point this station was the terminus for the Transcontinental Railroad, and today houses many restored locomotives and railway cars among other attractions. Another museum not to be missed is the J. Paul Getty Museum in L.A. Not only is the actual museum building an architectural landmark, but its permanent collection includes Van Gogh's "Irises," a spectacular piece of art.

    Of course California is full of many man-made attractions as well. Southern California is dotted with theme parks such as Disney Land, Disney's California Adventure Goran Dragic Heat Jersey , Sea World, The San Diego Zoo, San Diego's Wild Animal Park, Knott's Berry Farm, Legoland, the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk Hassan Whiteside Kids Jersey , Six Flags, and Universal Studios Hollywood. These parks attract thousands of visitors each year and for good reason: they're fun!

    Finally, one of the biggest reasons people flock to California is Wine Country. Multiple magazines and plenty of tour and travel groups are dedicated to this region in Northern California because so many people love it. Napa and Sonoma are two of the biggest and best wine-producing regions in the world, and they cater to the traveler with win tastings and outstanding restaurants. Beyond the vineyard tours and wine tasting, there are many spas which feature vineyard inspired treatments with grape-seed products or local mud. If that weren't enough, the scenery is fantastic Dion Waiters Kids Jersey , and scenic back roads for hikers, bikers, and cars abound.

    So, consider these 5 great reasons to visit California and start planning your trip; you won't be disappointed!

    NICOSIA, May 15 (Xinhua) -- The contraction of Cyprus's gross domestic product (GDP) slowed down in the first quarter of 2014 compared to the same period last year, according to data released by the Statistics Department on Thursday.

     

    The department said the GDP of the crisis stricken eastern Mediterranean island shrank by 0.7 percent in the first quarter (Q1) this year compared with 0.8 percent shrinkage in Q1 of 2013.

     

    On a year-on-year basis Dwyane Wade Kids Jersey , Cyprus's growth contracted by 4.1 percent, according to the statistics data.

     

    Cyprus was brought back from the brink of bankruptcy in March 2013 when it signed a 10-billion euro bailout with the Eurogroup and the International Monetary Fund.

     

    The deal involved the shutting down of a faltering lender and the recapitalization of its primary lender with depositor's money, leading to an acute shortage of liquidity to fund growth.

     

    The Cypriot economy contracted 5.4 percent in 2013, well below an original projection by international lenders for a 7.7 percent regression.

     

    Their projection of this year's contraction was for a 4.7 percent year-on-year drop in GDP, but Fitch Ratings put its own estimate of the shrinkage at 3.9 percent when it upgraded Cyprus ratings by a notch in April.

     

    The Eurogroup and the IMF have said they expect Cyprus to return to a modest 0.9 percent growth in 2015.

     

    JERUSALEM, May 25 (Xinhua) -- Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday offered Israel's help to investigate Saturday's shooting at a Jewish museum in Brussels Alonzo Mourning Kids Jersey , Belgium, that left four people dead, including an Israeli couple from Tel Aviv.

     

    "I am very disturbed by the growing anti-Semitism in Europe. There must be zero tolerance for anti-Semitism toward Jews and their state," Netanyahu was quoted by his bureau as telling his Belgian counterpart Elio Di Rupo, who phoned the Israeli premier to update on the details of the ongoing investigation.
