Need some outdoor inspo? If you’re in San Diego, it’s right in your backyard…
I was one of that kids that liked sleeping in a tent in my own backyard even though I had a perfectly good bedroom inside the house. That desire continues now that I live in Encinitas and have the camp vibes of San Elijo Campground down the street from me. It is truly glamping at it’s finest (glamorous camping for all you rugged outdoorsy folk). Waking up on a cliff above the beach where there are a bunch of fun surf spots and tons of beachy things to do doesn’t sound too shabby to me. Not to mention all the good grinds and cafes nearby to fuel up. It’s a non-commitment, budget-friendly vacay that you can plan the day of (outside of the high season that is). Nowhere near San Diego? Find your closest campground and reserve a spot now. Go on…give yourself a break from the usual four wall structure and take a neighborhood glampout to get in on the luxurious beach-camp vibes.

You know it’s time for a road trip to nature when your eyes start sporadically twitching from starting at a screen too much. Which is exactly what a couple of my best friends and I did last week. I hopped on board to Big Sur with staff photographer at Surfline Billy Watts and his girlfriend Jessica for an amazing week of camping, waves, hiking, and relaxing. It was the best vacation a burnt out college student like me could ask for right before finals. The sun blazed, the winds howled offshore, the beer never stopped flowing, and the beaches refreshed our tired bodies. To follow is a highlight reel of our trip, which really does not do the trip or Big Sur justice. The place is frikin’ amazing. Do yourself (and tired eyes) a favor and get there ASAP.
