Now that we are headed into June, it finally feels like Summer is on the way. That means the vacation you have been planning is almost here.

But, maybe you should double-check your travel plans.

Caution: Californians Should NOT Visit These 31 Places This Year

If you really think about it, it’s strange that anyone living in California would want or need to go somewhere else on vacation. Last year around 270 million people came to the Golden State because it is the perfect place to vacation. You have beaches, scenic cities, majestic mountains, and all other types of destinations.

Still, we look to other places for our summer trips. But the world is a dangerous place and even beautiful destinations should be avoided. These 19 places are on the Do Not Travel list along with 12 others that are listed as Reconsider Travel or Exercise Increased Caution.

Californians: Do Not Travel To These 19 Places

The United States Department of State has four levels of advisories: exercise normal precautions, exercise increased caution, reconsider travel and do not travel. These 19 destinations are currently under a Level 4: DO NOT TRAVEL advisory, so plan your travels accordingly.

Many of the locations on that list are no-brainers and some countries didn't make those lists because they are categorized as 'Other' by the government. China, Mexico, and areas around Israel are a mix of restrictions and travel suggestions.

If a country is currently in the middle of a massive war - it’s not a good place for a vacation. If the place has gained a reputation for kidnapping tourists or general civil unrest - it’s not a good place for a vacation.
