There are more than twenty beaches in Los Angeles County alone. They have turned into an emblem for the region.
I visited the beaches of Southern California in autumn and was amazed how inviting they were with the lack of theatricality and clamorousness. Cozy restaurants and picturesque arty shops were still making an allusion to the fancy lifestyles we all have dreamt about. But this time they were approachable and affordable like an old star in a nostalgic mood. Calm and serene atmosphere was embracing you in every step. Locals in their daily routines were blending with tourists, belated for the party season, but on time for the peaceful relaxation nature always is willing to provide.
