Even though I have mentioned that Seattle is where I want to settle someday (read my blog here), I feel blessed to be living in SoCal. It is ultimately the best place to raise children, in my humble opinion. With so many theme parks, national parks, museums and activities to take your kids to, it’s totally impossible to run out of things to do and explore. There’s also an overabundance of beautiful beaches all throughout, and this is one of the main reasons why most people move here.
I’m pretty sure you’ve heard of Venice Beach as it’s one of the most popular beaches in Los Angeles, but do you know about Venice Canals? It’s a peaceful and charming neighborhood about 15 miles East of Downtown LA. Whenever you want to take a break from the activities at the beach or just want to get away from all the craziness of Los Angeles, I highly recommend taking a morning or afternoon stroll in Venice Canals.
