California Dreamin’

It’s no secret that California is known for its beautiful beaches, in fact, there are more than 420 public beaches along the breathtaking coastline of The Golden State. So how do you choose which one to go to? That’s where we come in.
You’ve probably heard of beaches like; Laguna Beach, Monterey Beach, Santa Cruz and Coronado – but we’ve tried to gather up a few top choices that you may not have heard of. We won’t say these are hidden gems, but they don’t get as much of the spotlight as some of the others mentioned. What do you need for a California beach vacation? Not much! Each of these beach cities has great food, local boutiques and places to grab necessities.
