Yes, I am born and raised in California. No, I have never gotten to take a trip like this before... but I will again!! Everything you want from a cool funky beach town, with one of the cheapest airports in the world to fly into? Count me in. Some of my favorite things to do.... 

Exploring the beach! Even though it wasn't bikini weather, it was so fun just walking up and down the strand, playing on muscle beach! 

The Pier has fun for kids of all sizes, so retro cool.

The food and restaurants were amazing and ranged from Casual to super chic. 

Obsessed with these candy colored buildings...
