List of largest California cities by land area

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of the 25 largest incorporated cities in the State of California ranked by land area.

If ranked by total area, a number of coastal cities would appear disproportionately larger. For instance, San Francisco's 46.9 square miles (121 km2) of land area would make it 30th on this list. Sorted by total area, San Francisco would be third, as water makes up nearly 80% of its total area of 231.9 square miles (601 km2).

Note: These are the actual incorporated areas of the listed cities, as opposed to metropolitan areas, urban areas, or counties, and will therefore differ from other available listings.
