The Pacific Coast is an enormous trail of beaches, each one with its own distinct character and crowd. Young and young-at-heart, rich and poor, everyone who lives or visits California gets to enjoy the sand, the sun, the waves and the salty intoxicating air. And because summer is just around the corner, The Italian Eye presents you with the top 7 California beaches: for those looking to soak up the sun, take a romantic walk and maybe do a little surf on the side.
California. We hear its name in every song. We see its most famous tourist attractions in movies, TV shows, music videos, and posters. There is even a full menu of drinks named after its many famous cities. But what many outsiders don’t know is that the glitz and glam affiliated with California in fact is a tiny fragment of a much larger image. The Golden State, all in all, is a serene, quiet and laid-back coastal land mostly covered with rural areas, mountains and bedroom communities built to satisfy the everyday needs of working families.
So what makes California worth the trip other than theme parks, Hollywood and expensive shopping on Rodeo drive? Its beaches, of course.
