Here Are 10 Of The Most Charming Small Towns in Southern California
There’s something about a small town that feels quite magical. From the quaint shops and the local markets to the traditional annual events and parades, a small town has that special something that makes you want to linger a while. We are lucky to have many of those places right here in Southern California. Take a look at a few of my favorites.
An island town is the best kind of small town if you ask me. Imagine sipping your morning coffee with this kind of view. Inspiring.
Walking through Solvang is like stepping into a magical European village.
A popular mountain and lake getaway scattered with cozy cabins, gingerbread houses and woodsy hikes. Lake Arrowhead is right out of a Norman Rockwell painting and one of my all time fave small towns to visit for a weekend away.
Just look at those trees! San Juan Capistrano is best explored on foot. There is so much history and stunning architecture at every turn that it's worthy of a nice, long stroll.
It doesn't get much better than an outdoor patio filled with books. This charming bookstore (Bart's Books) is one of the many reasons Ojai is tops on my list for the best small town.
How about a small town where you can stroll on the beach in your backyard?
Just one of the many cute shops scattered around Julian that adds charm galore to this small town.
A bustling commercial strip in Old Town Temecula captures the old-time feel of this charming wine country to the south.
This popular mountain resort is the perfect choice for a small-town getaway. Fresh air, grand views and a thriving arts scene add to the appeal of this place.
The tree-lined streets in Coronado look like the perfect spot for a bike ride.
It’s hard not to fall in love with each and every one of these places as they’re all very special in their own way. Are there any memorable small towns that you would love to see on this list? Let us know in the comments.
