Southern California Just Wouldn't Be The Same Without These 11 Charming Small Towns
By Natasha Kayes|Published October 20, 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.
Southern California has many faces. You may know it for its laid-back vibe, sparkling beaches, forested mountains, historic Missions, or its quirky hidden gems. Whatever comes to mind for you, these charming small towns that define Southern California really tell the story well.
