One of our favorite places to go for walks along the beach and watch the sunset is Dana Point Harbor. It's tucked away behind some cliffs and is ridiculously photogenic. There is a rock jetty walkway and places for seals to sunbathe. The beach is a protected area, so marine wildlife and beautiful shells are scattered on the shore.
I think there may even be a chance mermaids live here. Don't tell me that doesn't look like a rock Ariel would perch upon! I bet there are gizmos and gadgets aplenty under these here shores.
Living in Southern California near the beach is a dream come true, and I am doing my best to make the most of this amazing area we live in. As we get out and explore more, I want to share fun activities to do with kids in Southern California. I know I love any tips and recs I can get, so hopefully they will be helpful.
If you haven't been to Dana Point Harbor, add it to the list. Like I said, it is a gorgeous beach, and there are boats, yachts and ships to explore for the wee pirates in the family. Baby Beach is right in the thick of the harbor as well, which is a great beach for little kids since it has no waves. (Hence the name of it—imagine that!) You can also rent bikes and cruise along the beach while popping in and out of the cute shops in the village.
The local restaurants in the area serve fresh seafood and have that classic seaside, laid-back vibe. We've had the fish and chips from Jon's Fishmarket. They were pretty tasty, but I have a hankering to try out The Harbor Grill for lunch soon. The Mahi Mahi with Mango Chutney BBQ Baste is calling out to me. I can hear it now ... "Eat me, Abbey! Eat meee!" Also, Coffee Importers apparently has a killer bagel. I might have to see what that situation is all about this week. That is if the boys don't have pinkeye. (Insert ALL the horrified emoji faces.)
I hope you get a chance to get out and explore Dana Point Harbor if you haven't already. It's a fun day with the kids. And Happy Memorial Day! Hope it's been a pleasant and relaxing day with family, honoring and remembering those you love who have passed on and those who have bravely served our country.
