Every year around California there are carnivals, street fairs, state fairs, county fairs and other celebrations that bring amusement rides. The midway area is always popular.

As summer comes to an end in California, children are headed back to school. While you may be focused on buying school supplies and new school clothes, you also have to plan for how your child will get to and from school each day.

When the temperatures rise, more and more people flock to beaches and backyard pools to get some relief from the California heat. If you have small children, then you really need to be aware of water safety. Drownings are quite common when it gets hot, and it only takes a matter of seconds for a child to end up in danger.

While the state of California allows you to get your license at the age of 16, you are not yet an adult. This means that you cannot be held completely liable should you cause an accident and harm others or damage property. When you get your license, the state makes sure to assign responsibility for you to your parents or guardian. According to the Department of Motor Vehicles, your parent or legal guardian must sign your driver's license application. This signature indicates that he or she take financial responsibility for you as a driver.
