About Southern California

The Southern California Coast is synonymous with sun, beach babes, and stunning sandy beaches - and for good reason. The counties of San Diego, Orange, and Los Angeles are chock full of great beaches for just about any beach activity you can think of. Surfing is a top activity in these parts, but so is beach volleyball, camping, scuba diving, tidepooling, people-watching, dog-walking, swimming, and just laying around sunbathing (is that really an activity?). Or you can get away from it all with a trip to Catalina Island just a quick ferry ride away. Near the beaches of Socal you'll find comfy hotels, tasty restaurants, and many unique things to do. The Southern California Coast is a wonderful place to live and an incredible vacation destination for those seeking sun and fun.
