Towns and Cities

Do you remember what the four regions of California are? They are coastal, valley, mountain, and desert. There are towns and cities in each region. Let's talk about how these towns and cities came to be.
As we have already learned, most people in the state live in the coastal region. Three of the biggest cities on the coast are San Francisco, Los Angeles, and San Diego. These three cities began because each area had a good harbor for ships on the Pacific Ocean.
