The California Bucket List: Your daily guide to the best adventures and experiences in the Golden State

Lassen Volcanic National Park

Distance: 578 miles one-way. Lassen Peak, which last erupted in 1915, is the largest of more than 30 volcanic domes in the park, which is about 165 miles north of Sacramento. Hissing fumaroles (steam vents) and boiling mud pots from those volcanoes continue to shape the park's landscape. Though the climate is unpredictable, summer, with its warm, dry weather, may be the best time for a visit. -- Kelsey Ramos
