These 7 Charming Waterfront Towns In Southern California Are Perfect For A Day Trip
By Natasha Kayes|Published February 23, 2023
I was born and raised in sunny Southern California and will never tire of the West Coast, although I spent several years living in Southeast Asia, about as far from California as you can get. Wherever I am in the world, I love straying from the beaten path, experiencing local life, and discovering hidden gems - camera in hand. The beach is my happy place and when I am not there (or writing), you will usually find me baking, watching movies, and cuddling my pugs. I have traveled around the country and around the world, and it never, ever gets old. Being able to combine my passion for travel and my love of writing is nothing short of a dream.
We just love being by the water. Whether it is a sandy beach, a pristine mountain lake, or quiet canal that makes us dream of Italy (yes, we have canals!), the water calls to us. If you are looking for the perfect day trip destination, you are in the right place. In fact, we have not one, but seven lovely waterfront towns in Southern California that make for a perfect day.
