Balboa Park

nullThe city of San Diego and the greater San Diego county are home to beautiful beaches, popular attractions, hiking trails, and many more adventures.

Many people come to the city to enjoy SeaWorld’s exhibits and shows or the world-famous San Diego Zoo, but there is much more to explore around town. 

You can spend days visiting the museums at Balboa Park, take a sunset dinner cruise in the harbor, or climb aboard an Aircraft Carrier.

Balboa Park is a sprawling 1200-acre park full of open spaces, gardens, hiking trails, and lots of museums. The park is also home to the world-famous San Diego Zoo.

Buck Gully Hike

nullIf you feel like a nice easy hike close by, Buck Gully in Newport Beach is a very good choice. Just a few steps away from the beach in Orange County and in the middle of million-dollar homes, you can find this hidden oasis of lush wilderness and running water. 

Santa Cruz, CA

nullThe city of Santa Cruz, California is known for its moderate climate, natural beauty, amazing coastline, and redwood forest.

This sleepy beach town is within a one-hour driving distance from San Francisco or San Jose. 

You can certainly make Santa Cruz a stop on your Bay area itinerary, but I think it deserves to be its own destination. There is so much to do and see – you can easily spend a week without getting bored. 

Catalina Island

nullCatalina Island is a short boat ride from Los Angeles or Orange counties, but very far off in ambiance and charm. You can very easily forget you are in California and let your imagination take you to a Mediterranean Island. 

Visiting the island today, it is hard to believe that it was established as a home for Native American tribes and later as a beef ranch. The development of Catalina into its current status as a tourist destination happened in waves. The person with the biggest influence on the island’s development was the chewing-gum magnate William Wrigley Jr. He purchased the majority of the island around 1919 and got to work improving it. 

About Us

Huntington Beach First, let me introduce myself: I am Bill from Anaheim, California - USA. 

I love to travel, and during my travels, I was always looking for a good source of information about the area I am visiting. I bought travel guides. I searched travel websites looking for information that only the locals would know, and I always came up empty-handed. 

Eaton Canyon Waterfall

You can find this hidden gem in the San Gabriel Mountains close to Pasadena and Arcadia, California.

Laguna Beach

Laguna Beach is a seaside resort city that is much more than a beach town. The city is nestled amongst rolling hills and valleys overlooking the shoreline with great beaches, shops, restaurants, and art galleries - giving it a distinct French Riviera allure.

Laguna Beach is a great destination for a family looking to escape the heat of the inland cities or for couples looking for a romantic stroll on the beach.

Along with great beaches, hiking trails, and tide pool explorations, the city is famous for its artist community with plenty of art galleries and festivals.

Joshua Tree National Park

This 800,000 acres park straddles the Mojave and Sonoran deserts in California. It is home to the most stunning rock piles, mountain ranges, desert views and an unexpected oasis here and there. 

Within the NP boundaries, you can enjoy an abundance of hiking and biking trails, bouldering and camping. The park is also a world-famous destination for rock climbers.
