The sun is shining, the days are longer and the countdown to summer is officially on. With the kids out of school and the beach calling, you might be thinking of planning a vacation to California. Already a California native? Luckily you live where most people vacation, but chances are you haven’t had the opportunity to take full advantage of the local attractions Orange County has to offer. Southern California is home to many great theme parks, resorts, restaurants and pristine beaches, which may make it difficult to select where to go during your stay. We’ve compiled a list of California top spots to visit this summer, helping you narrow down how to spend your vacation with loved ones.
Crystal Cove State Park’s rolling surf, sandy beaches, tidepools, gently sloping hills, and deeply wooded canyons and ridges provide a delightful contrast to its bustling surroundings. Located off busy Pacific Coast Highway between Corona del Mar and Laguna Beach, Crystal Cove is one of Orange County’s untouched gems of open space and natural seashore.
Listed as a Historic District is an enclave of 46 vintage rustic coastal cottages originally built as a seaside colony in the 1930’s and 1940’s, which are available to rent year-round! Crystal Cove offers sand and surf, rocky reefs, ridges and canyons – plus recreational opportunities – that appeal to everybody! Also available in the Historic District is the Beachcomber Café, a restored beachfront cottage, offering a relaxed dining atmosphere with spectacular ocean views and a quality menu for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
