California Travel Tips

When Life Gives You Lemons — Celebrate!

Published on: September 12, 2017


Look out for lemons in the South. After Hurricane Harvey many cars and trucks will be cleaned up and resold, often without new buyers realizing they are salvaged.  The resale of repaired flooded cars is not illegal, as long as the flood damage is disclosed on the title to buyers. After Hurricane Katrina, thousands of rebuilt flood vehicles were sold to unsuspecting buyers with titles that had been washed or reissued in a different state.

Look for lemons in California. A cause for celebrating at the Lemon Festival in Goleta, California is the top producer of lemons in the U.S. and two counties, Ventura & Santa Barbara, grow 50% of them. Production has declined in the past year while prices have gone up.
