A Vacation In Your Own Backyard
Are you in need of a vacation but can't take the time off work, or just find some type of obstacle that prevents you from taking one? Good news! There is beauty and desired destinations all around you, you just have to know where to look!
Each state has something unique and special that it has to offer. Whether it be going on a new hike, taking a day trip to the beach or lake, or frolicking in a field of flowers, there is always something new around you that you have not yet explored.
Living where I do in San Diego, I am in constant awe of how much there is to do. Even scrolling on Instagram, I find new little hidden gems that I am just dying to find and explore. Take the time to do some research about what your state has to offer. You may be surprised about what secrets lie so close to you that are just waiting to be found.
Here are some of the hidden gems that I have come across here in my hometown!
The Walker Canyon Poppy Fields
Recently, California experienced the super bloom. Poppy's sprouted up all around California. In particular, Walker Canyon in Lake Elsinore was flooded with Poppy's. We took a trip up there and had a fun little photo shoot among the flowers.
Thousand Steps Beach in Laguna Beach
Talk about a heaven on Earth. This hidden gem is located in Laguna Beach. It takes a little bit of energy, stamina, and risk to get there, but it is all worth it in the end. This ocean pool is absolutely breathtaking.
I even vlogged a bit of it! Check it out below!
