A Brief History of California
- California was ceded to the United States following the Treaty of Guadalupe-Hidalgo, which ended the Mexican War and gained the United States all lands north of the Rio Grande, the border the two share today. California was admitted to the Union in 1850 and during this time the state grew rapidly thanks to the California Gold Rush which had begun two years prior. Los Angeles blossomed into the mecca of the entertainment industry and today the state is one of the largest in the U.S. both by population and in terms of the size of its economy. California leads the U.S. in fruit and vegetable cultivation and production, and if California were its own separate country it would have the ninth largest economy in the world.
What to Expect When Shipping to or from California
- The state of California is home to over 38 million people and ranks 1st overall in total population among the 50 states. It has many cities that are considered to be major metro areas and many interstates and popular state highways that allow carriesr to transport cars all across the state. Areas such as Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, Sacramento and San Jose are all popular auto transport locations, and many carriers run routes to, from and through the state of California. Summertime shipping costs are actually a bit higher than winter ones, especially to areas like L.A. which see logjams – lots of people going into or out of the area and not enough carriers to meet demand – which can extend pickup windows and increase prices during the summer. As the season winds down, however, prices lower, and fall and winter shipping is generally cheaper and easier to arrange.
