I'm a filmmaker; I like traveling to many places in California looking for the most unique and impressive places to shoot videos. In fact, California is such an amazing state with so many places to visit like art museums and landmarks! But many people don't have the opportunity to visit California because it's very expensive to travel to the Golden State. Instead of traveling, I will take you on a tour to those places and my travel videos will show you a lot of scenic sights and monuments absolutely free on my Youtube Channel.

The David and Fela Shapell Family Collections, Conservation and Research Center is a state-of-the-art facility that has 103,000 square feet (9,570 sq. meters) for documents and artifacts, with room for expansion.
The museum's collection is expected to double in size over the next decade.
The center in the suburbs of the nation's capital is home to thousands of items in eight climate-controlled vaults in a building hardened for tornadoes and hurricanes.
The museum's collection has 20,168 objects.
Less than 1 percent of the museum's holdings are on exhibit in the Washington museum.
The collection includes everyday objects, from children's toys and clothes to sewing machines used in concentration camps.

Miami Beach - Sightseeing: Beach Loop
Visit Miami / Miami Beach (Pictures and Videos):
(where you can find all information, vídeos, pics, ...)
Miami Beach Views
The Beach Loop will take you from Central Station along the scenic Macarthur Causeway and all the way around the island of Miami Beach.
Enjoy the stunning views across to the islands and towards the imposing skyline of Downtown from the causeway. Marvel at Washington Avenue, Collins Avenue and Ocean Drive as we cruise alongside the palm trees and show you the best that South Beach has to offer.
Hugely popular with American and foreign visitors alike, the southern part of the border island that separates Biscayne Bay from the Atlantic Ocean is known as South Beach and has all the parties, palm trees and iconic Art Deco buildings that immediately say Miami.
With literally hundreds of bars, nightclubs, restaurants, stores and hotels, South Beach is a real hub of entertainment; yet for those in search of a somewhat more serene cultural experience, the area also boasts a wealth of theatres, museums and historic sites.
And then of course there are the beautiful beaches. Soak up the sunshine, catch a tan with the locals, and look out for the ornamental neon-coloured lifeguard towers - designed by local artists - that adorn the shoreline.
Originally constructed in the 1920s and known as the County Causeway, the now considerably expanded six-lane MacArthur Causeway traverses Biscayne Bay, connecting mainland Miami to Miami Beach and the other islands.
Marvel at the imposing panorama of the Miami skyline, enjoy the tranquil vistas out across the water to Palm Island, Dodge Island and Star Island, and don't forget to keep an eye out for the Flagler Monument on Flagler Memorial Island.
Art Deco District
In 1979, Miami Beach's Art Deco Historic District was listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Art Deco District is the largest collection of Art Deco architecture in the world and comprises hundreds of hotels, apartments and other structures erected between 1923 and 1943.
In the 1920s, Art Deco really appealed to Americans who loved its decadent, extravagant look -- qualities that their generation was keen to embrace. Different styles emerged: Miami Deco, Depression Moderne and Streamline Deco, to name but three.
And the appeal has endured; don't miss the US Post Office, Lincoln Theatre and Albion Hotel - all classic designs still thrilling to the eye.
It's not all Art Deco in the district though; look out for the Mediterranean Revival style of Española Way and the grand Casa Casuarina -- former home of fashion designer Gianni Versace.
The most famous street in all of Miami is Ocean Drive; a must-see for any visitor. Running down the East side of South Beach, it is lined with boutique hotels, bars, restaurants and lounges.
A fashion favourite in the early 90s, there are still a good number of modelling agencies along the street. Many aspiring models and fashionistas view Ocean Drive as one long catwalk. It's all about seeing and being seen, making this busy strip a great place for people-watching.
The street is dominated by the Streamline Moderne style; a subset of Art Deco architecture with long horizontal lines, curving forms and nautical themes. Head there after dark to see the striking buildings lit up in all their neon glory!

California: Richard Nixon Presidential Library
The Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum is the presidential library and burial site of Richard Milhous Nixon, the 37th President of the United States (1969–1974), and his wife Pat Nixon.
The museum was officially dedicated on July 19, 1990.
The museum, housed in a 52,000-square-foot (4,800 m2) building, offers a narrative of Nixon's life and career. Behind the museum is the birthplace and childhood house, which was constructed by Nixon's father using a homebuilding kit, and restored to appear as it was in the 1910s. President Nixon and Pat Nixon are buried on the grounds, just a few feet from the birthplace.
President Nixon's helicopter is in display on the library grounds. President Nixon flew it dozens of times to Camp David, over the pyramids in Egypt, and on his final flight from the White House.
The Nixon Library has a full-scale, exact replica of President Nixon's Oval Office that guests can enter and interact within.
Richard Milhous Nixon (January 9, 1913 – April 22, 1994) served as the 37th president of the United States from 1969 until 1974. A vigorous campaigner for Republican candidates while serving as the nation's 36th vice president from 1953 to 1961, and as a representative and senator from California, he became the only president to resign from the office due to his involvement in the Watergate scandal.
Nixon was born to a poor family in Yorba Linda, California. He graduated from Duke University School of Law in 1937 and returned to California to practice law. He and his wife Pat moved to Washington in 1942 to work for the federal government. He served on active duty in the Navy Reserve during World War II. He was elected to the House of Representatives in 1946 and to the Senate in 1950. His pursuit of the Hiss Case established his reputation as a leading anti-Communist and elevated him to national prominence. He was the running mate of Dwight D. Eisenhower, the Republican Party presidential nominee in the 1952 election, and he served for eight years as vice president, becoming the second-youngest vice president in history at age 40. He waged an unsuccessful presidential campaign in 1960, narrowly losing to John F. Kennedy, and he lost a race for governor of California to Pat Brown in 1962. In 1968, he ran for the presidency again and was elected, defeating Vice President Hubert Humphrey and Alabama Governor George Wallace in a close election.
Nixon ended American involvement in the war in Vietnam in 1973, ending the military draft that same year. Nixon's visit to China in 1972 eventually led to diplomatic relations between the two nations, and he initiated détente and the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty with the Soviet Union the same year. His administration generally transferred power from federal control to state control. He imposed wage and price controls for 90 days, enforced desegregation of Southern schools, established the Environmental Protection Agency, and began the War on Cancer. He also presided over the Apollo 11 moon landing, which signaled the end of the moon race. He was re-elected in one of the largest electoral landslides in American history in 1972 when he defeated George McGovern.
In his second term, Nixon ordered an airlift to resupply Israeli losses in the Yom Kippur War, leading to the oil crisis at home. By late 1973, the Watergate scandal escalated, costing Nixon much of his political support. On August 9, 1974, he resigned in the face of almost certain impeachment and removal from office—the only time an American president has done so. After his resignation, he was issued a controversial pardon by his successor, Gerald Ford. In 20 years of retirement, Nixon wrote his memoirs and nine other books and undertook many foreign trips, thereby rehabilitating his image into that of an elder statesman and top expert on foreign affairs. He suffered a debilitating stroke on April 18, 1994, and died four days later at age 81.
