Thousand Steps in Laguna Beach Try an Acai Bowl
Have you ever heard of Thousand Steps in Laguna Beach? I hadn’t, but apparently all the locals know about it. It’s a beach off 9th street in Laguna that has three-hundred-something steps to climb down in order to get to the beach! On one hand, that’s a lot of work, but on the other, it means a less crowded beach!
The beach itself is filled with big rocks. They look beautiful, but make swimming a little dangerous. Be sure when going into swim, to stay far away from them. The current gets strong and can easily push you into the rocks.
Thousand Steps Beach had some of the bluest water I saw the whole trip (besides La Jolla in San Diego). When you swam, you could look down and see your toes! I have a love-hate relationship with clear water. It sure is beautiful, but I’d rather not see the fish I’m accompanied by in the water! Overall, I’d say it’s a must-see in Southern California. The walk back up from the beach to the road is killer, but totally worth it for a beautiful beach!
Acai Bowls. Have you ever heard of acai berries? It’s a superfood heavy in antioxidants. One common meal in Southern California is Acai Bowls. Which, essentially, is puree’d acai topped with fruit & granola.
Acai Bowls were such a fun, fresh breakfast or lunch option. I always felt infinitely better after than before. I totally understood what the rage was all about after having one.
^Aftermath of Acai. There were so many different acai places to choose from, but after trying a few, Banzai Bowls was definitely the winner in my book. Theirs tasted the most fresh & flavorful. There are four different locations in SoCal for you to try! I highly recommend this beach town staple.
Well, after a full summer, I completed as much as I could of the California Bucket List:-Sunset on Superior Ave. (Theres a big hill that overlooks the ocean, super pretty.)
-Disneyland (Too broke…plus, I’ve been! If you haven’t, Disney is a must when in California!)
-Rose Bowl Flea Market
-Yoga at Darling HQ (No yoga, but going to the Darling Dinner was even better in my book!)
