Every year I take a trip with my girls, somewhere. Usually the beach because it's relatively close and . . . just . . .so . . . . incredible. This year we spent two nights in big bear, and two nights beach camping. While I won't recommend the campsite we went to, it was too close to the road, and too far from the ocean. We did have fun though. Kayaking in Big bear, playing at the beach, shopping at the cute village, and enjoying the campfire, and cool air.
