Kid Friendly Glamping in California

Don’t leave the kids at home on your next vacation. Traveling with your child can be very educational and you’ll make valuable memories worth reminiscing about as they grow older. Expose them to the great outdoors, there is so much learn through real life interactions and experiences that cannot be taught in a classroom (this is why schools offer field trips). There are plenty of activities out there that both children and parents can enjoy. Now, with the following kid friendly properties located in the beautiful state of California, there is no need to plan for a sitter.

You may be asking yourself, Why California? California is one of the most popular states to visit for several reasons; national parks, lakes, rivers, beaches, shopping, nightlife, surfing, and theme parks among others. The entire family can enjoy a relaxing stay in a luxuriously designed cabin in the forest or a more unusual stay such as a yurt with views of the beach that is just steps away from your accommodation. Rather than staying in the casual motel or hotel room, which can get expensive, treat your family to a glamping vacation. Take it from someone who travels to California as often as possible, though the scenic drive may be long, all that the state has to offer is well worth it. I always come back home feeling refreshed and ready to go back to my regular life in the city, you can too!
