How many times all of us have had vacations in distant places? Sure, we all have gone the way others have, booking a hotel room, going out for excursions, and returning back to concrete walls.
But what about camping? Tent camping is a great way of having a vacation at nearly half or more of the cost of such vacations. And it is certainly less stressful, more enjoyable, and brings the members of the family closer. So where do you go? There are a lot of such places.
Southern California offers you a very good choice. There are beautiful campgrounds, and because of its salubrious climate, you can do tent camping anytime of the year. The beaches are nearby – indeed you can camp near the beach itself, and what can be more relaxing than looking at the sun setting over the Pacific? How soothing it is. The beaches themselves afford your children a lot of fun, and if you don’t mind your age, nothing stops you from frolicking with them.
The recommended places for ten camping is around the San Diego area. San Elijo State Beach is another choice. South Calsbad State Beach is yet another. All these provide you excellent outdoor fun activities. If you would rather have a quiet walk around the forest or on the beach, go ahead. And it quietens your mind, and rejuvenates your spirits.
For those who prefer the trees and business to the hustle and bustle of the waves of the ocean, you can check on the many camping locations in the forests in the area. These are relatively less crowded, and you can enjoy the quiet peace and the greenery around you. If you have the wanderlust, you can try boating, fishing, and also take a hike on the many trails that abound in the forests.
Camping in the national parks afford many amenities. Apart from the recreation activities, you have access to restrooms, picnic amenities, grills and clean water. Exhibits and programs are offered at the state parks. A walk in the trails would refresh you and cleanse your mind, and of course, the exercise would make your stomach rumble. Grills are also available and you can have the choice of food you would want to make a meal of.
Your sleep would also be better. The exercise you have had, the food that you ate, all combine to make for total relaxation. and that in turn makes for good and wholesome sleep. No deadline, no phones, and of course the sound of the breeze through the bushes and leaves sing a lullaby to which you succumb without knowing it, and there are you sleeping..give it a try.
While the weather would be a little warm in Southern California, staying under the trees allows the temperature and humidity to come down, and the refreshing breeze from the ocean and cools you down. There are chances that there may be inclement weather. You can weather them by carrying an umbrella or two and also bring along a tarpaulin to cover your tent. You can enjoy the rain by indulging yourself in a rain shower, which can exhilarate you.
