L.A. Staycations

If you are a working mom your time and money for vacations is limited. Luckily I found some fantastic "staycations" that are family and budget friendly and all less than an hour outside of Los Angeles.

1. Point Mugu  Beach Camping

My husband and I have been going to this spot for the past 6 years. This is a state beach north of Malibu off of highway 1, with dunes, hiking and biking trails, and camping spots on and off the beach. Every year we have seen dolphins off the coast. Keep in mind these spots fill up quickly, so reservations usually need to made months in advance.
2. Crystal Cove

This is also a state park and beach right outside of Laguna Beach. There are camping sites, hiking trails and rustic preserved cottages. The reservations for the cottages are extremely difficult to get, and generally fill up the day they open seven months in advance from booking.

3. Avalon at Catalina Island
The quaint town of Avalon is a relaxing escape from L.A. which is an hour boat ride from the Port in Long Beach (which is free on your birthday). This town is quaint and people mostly get around on golf carts. There are plenty of shopping, restaurants, water sports and sight-seeing on Avalon.
