As much as I love the beach, I'm not the best a sitting still. So I'm always looking for ways to enjoy the surf without having to stay put, and recently a co-worker was telling me about a great day trip to explore the tide pools of Leo Carrillo State Park. Just 30 minutes north on the PCH, and filled with anemones, crabs, sea cucumbers and starfish, it is the perfect ocean side compromise for LA's next hot day.
Or make it a weekend! Just 1.5 miles from the beach, Leo Carrillo State Park also offers lots of campsites shaded by giant sycamores. Book online at Reserve America!
