Summer may almost be over according to the calendar, but we're in Southern California. That means there's definitely still a few more beach weekends to go! Here are three of my picks depending on what type of beach day you're looking for:
Santa Monica - Between the boardwalk-esque pier and Promenade shops, you can escape the Los Angeles heatwave and enjoy the beach breeze without having to get sand all over your feet.
San Clemente - Gorgeous view from Calafia Park. Beautiful beach, nearby trails and yummy eats like Hapa J's around the corner.
Laguna Beach - Thousand Steps Beach has an intimidating trek to and from the beach but is definitely worth the leg workout!
