There’s nothing quite like fall in Southern California. The refreshing breeze still has a hint of summer’s heat and the afternoon sun gives off an amber glow you can only experience this time of year in this beautiful destination.
The slower, more contemplative mood isn’t the only reason to visit SoCal in the months to come. This is the season of beer, free LEGOLAND tickets, music festivals and so much more. Make the most of your autumn with a trip to one of the Golden State’s most favored vacation spots.
