Your explorations will begin with Columbus' journey to the New World in 1492, almost 500 years ago! You will sail up the coast of California with Cabrillo, Vizcaíno, and other famous sailors who searched for California harbors. You will explore with daring men who blazed new trails into the uncharted lands of California. You will meet the California Indians who shared their golden land with others. You will journey with the Spanish padres who dedicated their lives to the beautiful missions of California. You will be there when the missions are built, one by one along the El Camino Real. As you journey, think about the people who came to this land long before you. Let the whispers of these brave people help you discover a special part of your California heritage!
