Although the recreational use of marijuana was legalized in California last year, most pot consumers continue to smoke joints in their garages. There is no need to do that anymore! The booming cannabis market in the state has already created numerous 420-friendly tourist locations.
This year, California offers various destinations that allow both locals and out-of-state visitors to use marijuana. There are weed-themed festivals, yoga camps, retreats, hotels, and even spa resorts for tourists who do not want to stop using marijuana during their summer vacation.
Meanwhile, there are still some legislative issues in California that are slowing down the development of cannabis-friendly tourist destinations. Retail sales of marijuana will be allowed only in 2018, and the federal administration still keeps cannabis businesses in fear.
Fortunately, there are some pioneering start-ups that offer 420-friendly getaways in California. Let us take a closer look at them.
Located in the heart of the Trinity Alps, the hotel offers a cannabis-friendly atmosphere in the midst of stunning nature. Feeling Groovy at Eagle Creek Ranch is a great tourist destination for those who want to combine outdoor activities with marijuana consumption. You can stay either in a tent on the campsite for $40 per night or at the ranch house for $425. The price for the room also includes meals, cannabis, and activities.
The hotel has happy hours for marijuana consumers when they can enjoy weed-based edibles and appetizers. All meals in the restaurant are made from products grown on a local farm. As for the daily outdoor activities, you can opt for horseback riding, hiking, fishing, or boating.
This cannabis-friendly hotel is a special place for women, where they can relax and consume cannabis for lifting their spirits.

While visiting the Ganja Goddess Getaway in Pescadero, women have a great opportunity to unwind and have time to focus on themselves.
