The photo tours listed here are primarily in northern part of California which is not a formal geographic area. California's north-south halfway division is around 37° latitude, close to the level of San Francisco. Prevalently, however, "Northern California" as a rule alludes to the state's northernmost 48 counties. This definition corresponds with the county boundaries at 35° 47′ 28″ north latitude, which are the southern borders of Kings. Monterey, Tulare and Inyo counties. The term is likewise connected to the region north of Point Conception and the Tehachapi Mountains.

Due to California's huge size and differing topography, the state can also be subdivided in different ways. For instance, the Central Valley is a particular region in itself both culturally and geographically from coastal California, however in northern and southern California divisions, the Sacramento Valley and the vast majority of the San Joaquin Valley are generally set in northern California.

The state is frequently considered as having an added division north of the urban ranges of the San Francisco Bay Area and Sacramento area metropolitan regions. Residents in the extreme portions of northern California have felt less-represented in state government and in 1941 endeavored to create a new state combined with southwestern Oregon to be called Jefferson, or all the more as of late to acquaint enactment would split California into a three states. The coastal territory north of the Bay Area is alluded to as the North Coast while the interior areas north of Sacramento is alluded by locals as northstate
