Names: Brody (3) and Finn (1)
Location: Moonstone Beach, CA
Favorite Family-Friendly Place To See or Thing To Do Here: Our family enjoys tidepooling and beach combing low tide at Moonstone Beach, California. Its not far from our cozy culdesac but feels like an adventure every time we visit. The shallow caves in the rock cliffs provide cool hide and seek spaces and all the little tidepools are always teaming with ocean life to explore. The sound of surf returning and tired sunlight at dusk is always our signal to call it an evening.

Best Tip for Traveling with Kids: The most important tip with traveling with kids is think ahead, make a list, and be completely flexible. I always try to have realistic expectations with timeframe, (meaning how long until a meltdown ensues) and eating routines
Favorite Way to Make it Feel Like Home: We don't have anything in particular to make it feel like home on a vacation but the kids always bring a comfort toy or blanket and this is enough for them. Half of the fun is for it to NOT be like home for our family.
An Item you MUST Take With You While Traveling: Hmmm, an item that we must take with us while traveling would be a toss-up between our double stroller and the laptop

Thanks Nicole!
