I'm a native Californian and I can't imagine living anywhere else! (At least until I'm stuck in gridlock traffic, then more remote areas sound appealing. . .) I had a hard time narrowing down my favorite spots; now that summer is almost here, I can't wait to enjoy the outdoors! Pictures are worth a thousand words, so here are few of my favorites, in no particular order:
The J. Paul Getty Museum, also known as The Getty, overlooks the Westside and downtown Los Angeles. Spectacular views, beautiful gardens, and always incredible art exhibits, makes it a location that never gets old. Plus it's free!!
So many hiking trails and locations. SoCal is known for the outdoors!!
We spend most of our summer at the beach. Santa Monica has great waves, and a long bike path for scooters, bikes, people watching. I love to hang out with my book, while my daughters play in the sand or in the watera Rafflecopter giveaway
Lastly, my freebie for you keeps with the theme of California. It is a set of California coast photos, to supplement and enhance teaching geography. It's part of a larger photo set (coming soon) of the four California regions. Don't forget to click on the button below for your FREEBIE!! The summer countdown is on!!
