I'm a total enthusiast
about how much there is to do in where I live, in California!
So, I wanted to overwhelm you with a lot of quality web
links and reviews.

Looking for a Los Angeles, California
Whether you're visiting family, heading to Disneyland, touring
Hollywood, or just checking out one of the most famous cities
in the world, you can find your bed breakfast southern California

Thinking About an Orange County, California
But let me tell you about one of the coolest places to visit
in Orange County, Balboa Island! Part of Newport Beach,
Balboa Island is man-made. You have to take a ferry to get there,
and you can take your car on some ferries. Other than the great
shops and restaurants, and super-friendly people, their biggest
"big deal" is the Christmas Parade they've put on since
1908. What more could you want?
How about a San Diego, California Beach
is a unique area not to be missed... it's a classy island and
community unto itself off the coast of San Diego, and you can
get there via the marvelous and curvy Coronado bridge, or the
old-school route via the ferry. You may also be interested in
the infamous Hotel
Mar is perhaps the most affluent coastal community in San
Diego, a beautiful, relaxing place to visit, and one of my favorite
places in the area. Try Epazote's
blackened fish taco if you decide to do your beach vacation
ah, the ocean, the sun, the hippies... well thank goodness for
the breeze! But seriously folks, Encinitas has some really nice
restaurants! Plus there are some neat farmers markets on the
weekend. If you decide to have your California beach vacation
in Encinitas, and you like Italian, try Vigilucci's.
You won't be disappointed.
Jolla, like Del Mar, is an upscale, affluent oceanside community.
La Jolla has a lot better shopping, and more restaurants, though.
If you don't mind a few crowds at times (though much less than
in Ocean Beach or Pacific Beach!), it's nice place for your
California Beach Vacation (see picture below). If you're there
on a Tuesday evening, check out my public speaking group (more
fun than TV!), Toastmasters
of La Jolla.
