Family-Friendly Activities on the California Coast: Fun for All Ages

The California coast is a fantastic choice for a family vacation because it has activities for all ages. There are plenty of exciting and entertaining things to do, from relaxing on the sand to going on an outdoor adventure to viewing whales.

If you and your family are thinking about taking a trip to California, one thing is for sure: there is no shortage of things to do along the coast. So round up the gang, load up the car, and get ready for a trip of a lifetime full of thrills and spills.

Golden State beach fun: California is home to some of the world's most beautiful coastline. Spend the day at the beach with a picnic, some games, and some relaxing time in the sun.

A cruise departing from a California port city is your best bet for seeing whales of all sizes—from humpbacks and grays to blues and beyond—in their native habitat, along with dolphins and other marine critters.

Monterey Bay Aquarium, Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, and SeaWorld in San Diego are just a few aquariums along the coast worth visiting to learn more about the marine environment.

Many of California's coastal state parks, such as Big Sur State Park, Point Lobos State Reserve, and Crystal Cove State Park, have scenic hiking trails, picnic areas, and spectacular panoramas.

Rent a kayak or stand-up paddleboard and glide along the coast for a novel experience. Some of the marine mammals you might encounter include sea otters and seals.

People who live in or near California's coastline often go fishing for fun. A fishing charter is an alternative to fishing from shore.

You may get on two wheels and explore the coast's many picturesque trails and routes. The view is breathtaking, and the adventure is great for the whole family.

Many beaches in California cater to the growing number of people interested in learning how to surf or renting equipment so they may give it a go on their own.


If you and your loved ones need a place to unwind, Wander Anchor Bay has everything you could want in a high-tech abode with a breathtaking panorama. Relax to the sounds of the surf below, soak in the hot tub, and keep up with your workout routine in the convenience of your own home gym. 

These are but a few of the many family-friendly activities along the California coast. Get in touch with Wander Concierge if you need suggestions for local activities. Text 737-377-3205 to know more.
