California Dreaming on Huntington Beach

On rainy grey Monday, Monday, I know I’d be safe and warm if I were in LA (with respect to The Mama’s and The Papa’s!) and I’m definitely California Dreaming. Whether you’ve got a case of the Monday’s, or a case of the February’s or are just counting down the days until your next holiday, here are some of our favorite places and why the great state of California is worth a look!

Santa Monica Pier

The sign says it: Fishing, boating, & cafes, but there’s also an aquarium, carousel, arcade, people watching & more!

 Can’t forget Disney!

No child will ever let you step foot in the state of California without visiting Disneyland (celebrating it’s 60th anniversay this year!) and California Adventure Park!


Or Legoland!

Everything is awesome with LEGO! All the favourites are there including Star Wars, Chima, and of course, Emmett!


San Diego is awesome!

The Loews Coronado Resort is a great homebase from which to explore the San Diego Zoo, Balboa Park, SeaWorld and more!

And of course, the beach!

While my personal favourite beach is in Orange County, this official list of the best beaches in California is a lesson in beach fabulosity!

Toes in the California Sand
