2020 Itinerary

Leave the ‘city by the bay’ and start your adventure with a roadtrip on Highway 1 hugging the beautiful Pacific Coast. You’re in California, there’s only one thing to do – hit the beach. Hitting a different kind of sands, we check out glass beach where trash has transformed in to glittering treasures. Weird, but we like it. Get ready to pitch your tent by the sound of crashing waves as you get to know each other at your campground on the coastline.
