Ever since the days of the gold rush, Americans have had a desire to head west. Today, there are still plenty of good reasons to explore the western coastline of the United States. The West Coast, or Pacific Coast, consists of three states: California, Oregon, and Washington.  Aside from having some of the most picturesque scenery in the country, the West Coast is also home to many must-see locations.   Here are some of them:
