Overview

No other guide offers coverage of this fabled shoreline as comprehensively as Hidden Coast of California, focusing on the many miles of unspoiled beach-long famous stretches to dozens of hidden pockets along the way. Award-winning author Ray Riegert introduces travelers to the unique personalities of three of America's favorite oceanside cities. He leads travelers to bohemian coffeehouses near the shops and theaters of San Francisco's Union Square, traces the roots of the movie industry at famous film sites around Los Angeles and brings the entire family to San Diego's world-famous zoo and animal theme parks. Along the way the author suggests a visit to small fishing towns and international shipping ports, Victorian neighborhoods, and oceanfront mansions. He details how to best enjoy the state's popular coastal retreats — including sunbathing in Santa Barbara, beachcombing in Mendocino and relaxing in a bed-and-breakfast inn near Monterey. The ultimate beach lover's travel guide, Hidden Coast of California covers 175 beaches: 123 surfing beaches, 48 camping beaches, and even 21 nude beaches. A virtual bed-and-breakfast guide, this book recommends over 150 small hotels, guest cottages, and bed-and-breakfast inns. Perfectly suited for out-of-state visitors, this guide also offers locals countless suggestions for weekend getaways.
