I had never thought of Chicago as a place I wanted to take a vacation to. However I had the pleasure of being placed here for work for a few weeks and quickly fell in love with the city. A beautiful city especially if you love architecture, also one of the cleanest and easiest walking cities I have ever had the pleasure of being stuck in without a car. I have enjoyed walking through the neighborhoods of Streeterville, River North and East and Lincoln Park. This city has an indefinite attention to detail, from the food to the attractions and a plethora of activities, something for everyone. One of my favorite things is that so many of the restaurants source from local farms and change the menu with the season. There are also many LEED certified buildings in downtown, as well as recycling at every garbage can on the street.
With so many miles of coastline California has no shortage of beaches and the city of Los Angeles is no exception. Family fun, seclusion, water sports, biking, blading, arcade games, restaurants, roller coasters, bonfires and sand castles; LA's beaches have a little something for everyone. Here is a list of some of our favorite beaches in and around Los Angeles County.
Dockweiler State beach
Address: 12000 Vista del Mar Playa del Rey, CA 90293
Best Known For: Fire Pits
Dockweiler is a favorite among locals and adventurers. Located on the back side of the Los Angeles Airport you can both learn to hang glide here or spend the night roasting marshmallows at one of the beaches fire rings. The beach is quite expansive with more than 3.5 miles of beach. With ample parking and more than 100 full RV hookup sites this beach can get quite busy especially in the summer months and evenings. Its proximity to the airport makes it a little noisy, but all that is forgotten when you're watching the sunset at your fire pit. Several days a week you can also learn to hang glide on the beach for a nominal fee.
Even the most avid travelers enjoy a beach vacation from time to time. Few things are better for kicking back and forgetting your worldly worries. And, isn’t that what getting away is all about? Aside from getting a badass tan, spending time by the beach can be meditative and refreshing. It also provides the opportunity to catch up on those books you never get a chance to read.
The only trouble is, when most of us think about beach destinations, we consider places like the Bahamas. You know what we’re talking about; it’s all white sand beaches and blazing sunshine. You could even drink from coconut skins and find shade in those iconic beach huts. The trouble is, of course, that the Bahamas is a mean 1,362 miles from our shores. Depending on where you are located this can be a stretch of time and money.
But, all hope is not lost. In truth, there are some killer beaches closer to home which you could make the most of. We have some fantastic beach resorts here in the U.S., including the iconic Miami beach. And, of course, we have destinations like North Carolina’s Outer Banks on our doorsteps.
