California tourism update on current wildfire effects

fire

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.”

Visit California, together with leaders from California’s travel industry, encourages anyone who can provide support to affected communities to click here.

AIR QUALITY

Air quality across the state is improving. Visit AirNow.org to see updated air quality maps, or the CDC’s tips for protecting yourself from wildfire smoke.

TRAVEL INFRASTRUCTURE & ROAD CLOSURES

California’s gateway airports remain open, and flights across the state are operating normally. Major highways and travel corridors throughout the state are unaffected. For the latest road closure updates, check Caltrans.

SAFETY

California is a vast state. Most regions, including the city of Los Angeles, remain untouched and open for business.

Visit California’s first concern is always the safety and well-being of California residents and visitors. We recommend that visitors planning trips to affected areas consult their tour operator or hotel directly for the latest information.
