10 Undeniable Things You’ll Find In Every Southern California Home
When you live in Southern California, there are certain things you simply cannot do without. These 10 things, for example, are most likely in every SoCal home. Take a look and see how many of these items you have stocked in your own home. Number 10 is the only one not inside my house yet. I guess it’s time to head to the store and stock up. How about you?
10. Earthquake Survival Kit
With so much talk about earthquakes in Southern California, we all have some form of earthquake preparedness kit at the ready. Plus, we also have our tall furniture and wall hangings earthquake proofed. You do, right? Please tell me that you do.
Every Southern California home most likely has a drawer full of sunglasses. We buy them, we lose them, then buy another pair. Before you know it, we've collected a ton of sunglasses over the years. It's just one of the many items we simply can't live without in SoCal.
8. Craft Beer
With the craft beer capital of America right here in Southern California, there's no doubt there's plenty of local beer being chilled inside a SoCal fridge on any given day. Southern Californians especially love Stone Brewing, so it's highly likely that the beer in your refrigerator just so happens to have a Stone label.
7. Annual Disneyland Passes
Disneyland isn't only for vacationers from out-of-state. It's also a favorite destination for many of us who live right here in SoCal. If you're wondering why so many of us here in SoCal have annual Disneyland passes at home, it's because living here has its perks and Disneyland offers discounted passes to California residents.
6. Fresh fruit and vegetables from the farmers market...or from the backyard garden.
Living in Southern California means always having fresh fruit and veggies on hand. Whether you load up at the local farmers market or you pick them straight from your garden, you can always expect to find the freshest produce in a SoCal home.
Speaking of fresh produce, there's one item that you'll always find on the counter in a home in Southern California - a giant avocado. We grow the best avocados here in SoCal, so it's pretty hard to resist having plenty of them on hand for all of our favorite dishes.
With so many sunny days in SoCal, we all keep our cabinets stocked with sunscreen all year long. Whether for a walk on the beach, a day out on the trail, or a stroll through the neighborhood, a tube of sunscreen is one staple that every household has at the ready.
3. Beach Gear
From beach chairs to beach towels and even a beach umbrella, you'll find all sorts of beach gear in every SoCal home for those days we get to head out to the water and spend a day lounging in the great outdoors.
2. Hiking Boots
As much as we love the beach, we also love spending time on the trail. Even the little ones! You can bet we all have sturdy hiking boots or tennis shoes for a fun day outdoors.
1. A closet full of flip flops.
It's true, we love our flip flops here in SoCal. So much so, that it's quite possible you'll find a pair in every color in most everyone's closet since they are the perfect shoe for dress-up days, casual days, beach days, and lazy days. You get the idea, we pretty much can't live without our flip flops here.
