Wake up beneath the giant redwoods at Camp Chrysalis in Big Sur. Here, your child will connect with the outdoors by exploring the creek-bed and the geological history it displays. Kids will participate in local crafts like carving redwood staves or etching messages on marble cobbles collected from the river. Hikes up to the redwood canyon waterfall and diving into the famous swimming hole will amaze any nature lover.
Relax on one of the most beautiful beaches, the Pfeiffer State Beach, which offers great potential for a day of both exploration and leisure. The sunny California weather provides a great incentive to lay out on the beach for a family picnic. Several tide pools provide places for kids to explore along the shoreline, and there are many nature trails that provide a good hike. At $10 admission per car, this location is an affordable destination to pass the day away.
Gaze upon the beautiful Central California coast, with a trip to the Point Sur State Historic Park and Lighthouse. The lighthouse, which is over 100-years old, still functions as a beacon to warn ships away from the rocky coast. As part of a three-hour walking tour, you will be led up into the lighthouse for breathtaking and memorable views of the coast. Documentation of the history of the park can also be found along the way to add some educational value to the trip.
Saddle up for a unique ride along the coast with the Molera Horseback Tour. Departing from the historical Andrew Molera State Park, the horseback ride ends along the scenic coastlines. Passing through the 4,800 acres of the park, riders will enjoy the scenery of Redwood groves, meadows, and streams on the way to the Pacific Ocean. Horseback lovers will be enamored by the journey.
