Colorful shabby-chic seaside bars and roadside grills abound, however this island is a swank, luxurious vacation spot as well.It’s easy to discover the island by both bike or automotive, and nearby cays are a short sail away. Although there are several great seashores in Los Angeles, typically, you simply need to get away. Just an hour’s drive from downtown L.A., Laguna Beach feels like a trip from the town without having to go too far.
Shell Creek Park
Perfect for large groups and small children, this southernmost town is just 10 miles north of Chesapeake Bay, and has free public beaches with shallow, waveless waters. While you are there, take a photograph by the LOVEwork sign or go for some upscale golfing on the Bay Creek Golf Club. Just north of the beloved Sanibel Island, Captiva Island provides a extra quaint respite—crystal clear waters, pastel sunsets, and all. The Gulf of Mexico’s warm waters creates a tropical atmosphere, and heading again into mainland is simply a brief drive away. Try Captiva’s well-known bubble bread at the charmingly kitschy restaurant, The Bubble Room, or take a day to go to one of many smaller surrounding islands by boat.
