20 Things to do with Kids in Southern California

When I was 2 years old my parents moved our family to Southern California… we’ve been here ever since.  I never had to leave to understand just how lucky I am to have spent the last 35 years in this beautiful area. Not only do we have gorgeous weather all year long, we could literally visit the beach and the mountains on the same day.
