Take A Stroll Through Seaside Gardens, Then Dine Al Fresco At Thario's Kitchen In Southern California
By Natasha Kayes|Published October 05, 2022
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.
Blue skies, sunny weather, and an amazing food scene draw tons of visitors to Southern California. Whether you live in California or are just visiting, you no doubt want to spend time outdoors when you can. When it comes to relaxing outdoor activities, a leisurely walk through vibrant botanical gardens and outdoor dining in the coastal town of Carpinteria, California is hard to beat.
