There are no incorporated cities or even any traffic signals in the county-it is instead known for its amazing scenery, outdoor attractions, and history made famous by the California Gold Rush in the 1800's. "Mariposa," translates to "butterflies" from Spanish, and the town of Mariposa was so named by Spanish explorers because of the vast clusters of butterflies found there. In honor of this, each year in May, residents commemorate the annual arrival of the migrating monarch butterflies with a "Butterfly Days" festival and parade. The county is an amazing place to call "home"-a key objective is to maintain clean water, wildlife preservation, healthy ecosystems, clean air, and a fire-safe environment. The climate is sunny and comfortable for much of the year. The area's spectacular scenery, a multitude of things to enjoy, including fishing, hiking, gold panning, arts and culture, spas, breweries and more, and its historic roots make this a sought-after place of residence as well as a popular vacation destination.
