Exploring California With Kids

California has so much to offer both tourists, and it’s residents. From famous cities to National Parks, it’s easy to overlook smaller spots that you never knew we’re there. The sheer amount of things to do in Southern California can be overwhelming. If not for our blog, Trang and I may never have found some of California’s best-hidden gems.
