Welcome to the Local Adventurer Link Up. The purpose of this weekly link up is to foster gratitude for the place you live, show others great local experiences that they might never find as a tourist, and to inspire others to explore and be present wherever they are.
DISCOVERY CONSISTS NOT OF SEEKING NEW LANDS BUT SEEING WITH NEW EYES.
Our local adventure this week is Leo Carrillo State Beach. I know this isn’t in Vegas, but this was a local adventure while we were living in LA last year. I have so much content I still need to share from LA!
Leo Carrillo Beach is in the Malibu area and is one of our favorite beaches we’ve been to so far in SoCal. It is only an hour drive from North Hollywood (maybe longer, because if you’ve ever been to Los Angeles, you know how it is). It has 1.5 miles of beach where you can swim, surf, and explore coastal caves and reefs. There are also hiking trails and campgrounds available, so this beach pretty much has it all. :)
When we went, we could see that it was a popular spot for photographers, and we learned that many movies have been filmed here including the Karate Kid, Grease, and Inception. When you’re in the LA area, it’s fun to know that you’re practically walking onto a set almost everywhere you go.
