How Are You Spending Your Summer Vacation?

The kids are all out of school now, and many mornings you’re faced with the prospect of finding something to keep them occupied.  You’ve been putting off planning a real vacation, so we’re here to give you a nudge.  What are you waiting for?  Don’t let this summer dissolve into another haphazard exercise with a trip to see aunt Edna in Duluth while stopping at multiple tourist spots on the way.  We hate to break it to you, but many of those hot spots just don’t hold the interest of kids today.  Sure, you were amazed by the stuffed carcass of the world’s largest frog, but be prepared for your kids to walk away from the experience without that same sense of wonder.  And just because each of the kids has an iPhone to keep them busy in the back seat, don’t think that grants you any real latitude to take them on another boring road trip.  This year you really need to plan something different.

Well, surprisingly enough, we just happen to have a few great ideas for your vacation this summer.  And there’s not a one of them that involve trying to pump up your kids’ excitement about the world’s largest collection of rubber bands.  We have actual, real-life, vacation opportunities that will make you a hero in your family and give all of you a truckload of great memories.

Try a “staycation.”  This term gained popularity a few years ago as more and more folks decided to start enjoying the sights and attractions in their own backyard.  It really makes sense.  We have a number of great options for Southern California residents that will fulfill your vacation dreams.  If you love the beach, we have some great weekly rentals at some of our most popular Southland beaches.  If you’re like us, your stress just evaporates the moment you start feeling the sand between your toes.  Take a look at our Southern California Beaches page to see these great vacation rental homes.

Take a short drive to Big Bear. Big Bear is a great destination virtually any time of year.  During the summer, you’ll enjoy a great respite from the heat and haze that can overwhelm you in Southern California.  Take a short drive up the mountain and you arrive in a lush wonderland with virtually unlimited opportunities for fun.  Rent a boat on the lake, or just enjoy a swim in the cool mountain water.  Take a walk in the forest or wander among the fun shops and restaurants of Big Bear Village.  And most of all, enjoy some relaxing downtime in your Five Star Vacation Rental cabin.  You’ll be surrounded with amazing luxury and the finest craftsmanship.  It’s a real delight for the entire family.  Check out our luxury vacation rental cabins on our Big Bear page.  We’re also happy to help you choose the exact right cabin for your getaway as well.  Just give us a call 310-780-3411.
