Really, the beach is not unusual for us. We normally take one beach vacation a year. This time, we went to Pismo Beach, California. Not only did we enjoy this beach, one of the less rock ones of the Pacific Coast, but we enjoyed the town surrounding the beach! It was an awesome stop on a great trip! If you get to the coast of central California, don’t miss the chance to spend time in Pismo!
We had a great time. We flew into San Francisco and drove down the Pacific Coast Highway. The are plenty of places to hit the beach and we have found most of them. In many cases, we travel someplace by car. If we can drive there, it is obviously cheaper than flying. Usually, however, we get on the plane once a year to fly on our family vacation. When we put five of us on the plane, it becomes really expensive. For us, we have found the links below, nine times out of every ten, come in with the best flight prices.
One of the top tourist destinations in Maine is in Bar Harbor. We stayed at an awesome resort there. They took excellent care of us and it freed us up to have a great time! One of the fun things we did as a family was to play mini-golf at Pirates Cove. The three courses were all challenging….Mom and Dad lost…..got put in the stocks :) We had a great time!
One of the greatest natural wonders of the United States is the Grand Canyon! With breath taking views, amazing wildlife, and unique plants and flowers, there is no place like it! It was one of our most incredible family vacations ever!
Summer is a hot one. The goal this year to to hit all the state parks in our state. It’s half way through the summer and we are half way there. We are going to put up some great travel helps later on! This is the view from one of the park mountaintops.
