Here are some interesting stats on world tourism.

Top geographic locations visited by tourists during 2004:

France 75 million tourists
Spain 53 mil
USA 40 (Calif #1, Forida #2, Texas #3, New York #4, etc)
Italy 39
UK 25
Austria 19
Greece 19
Mexico 18
Germany 18
Canada 18

So our dear state is way up there. I have seen a few international tourists (dont want to call them foreigners) on some local dive boats. The last guy that the boat buddied me up with had a video camera, and he was oblivious to everything except his viewing screen. My real buddy was effectively my pony bottle on those dives.

What do you do (where do you go) when you already live in one of the top sites (California)?

I am planning to go to Greece this coming summer. They are also on the top list. And they also have great scuba diving.
