|There are a lot of places to visit in California. But just because|
it is in our backyard doesn't mean we go all the time. What
tourist spots are you wanting to check out?
That being said, I find it horribly ironic that we rarely do these things. We use the excuses that since we are so close, we can do it anytime. And what happens - We don't do any of them. We take these tourist attractions for granted. Last summer, I think we made it to the beach once. Ironic because it isn't like a trip to the beach is going to break the bank.
And yes, some of these places aren't very budget friendly. Just because Disneyland is right around the corner doesn't mean I go there every weekend (or even every single year!)
When my sister came out to visit a couple of years ago, I set up a plan that would show us what we have been missing around California, but what would still keep us within an affordable vacation budget. Whether you are traveling or you live in the area, don't miss out on the attractions because they are right there. You might be missing out on some great memories.
So, as my husband and I decide what kind of places we want to catch this year, I thought it would be a great time to highlight my sister's trip to California and how in one week, we put on more than 800 miles.
