Top 10 Favorite Local Beach & Lake Campgrounds

There’s nothing like the warm, summer nights to make you crave a good camping trip, or two 🙂 Who doesn’t love waking up in a tent, beach-side, to the crackling sound of fire pits and the delicious smell of bacon?? Plus, it’s my 30th birthday this weekend- and I mean, what better way to celebrate than by camping at the lake!?

There are so many campgrounds to choose from (which is another reason why we love the 805!), so today we are highlighting our top 10 favorite camp spots.

Wanderlust Work-It-Wednesday {no excuses}

If I were to put a figure to it, I would say approximately 60-70{fd7f0a6624fbd2224f3c60e3404acbd2207eb416c38268e7e97265ebe361b912} of my vacation planning involves thinking about what kind of food I’m going to eat.  No, seriously.  When we went to N’Awlins last April, I literally had a checklist. #notkidding

It is so fun to splurge on vacation — but, you can still balance fitness on the road, too!  In fact, this is one of our most favorite travel tips to make you feel like a ‘local’: work it out.

Seriously!  Going on a run allows you to see neighborhoods and landmarks you might not have seen otherwise.  Ducking into a cycling …

Best of… Dog Friendly Restaurants {805 area}

As I am sure you have come to realize, we love dogs {and pretty much all animals} but especially our cuddly canines. Conveniently enough, there’s a multitude of places around the 805 where you can bring along your furry friend and eat (or just drink ;), hike, and play.  We are lucky to live in a place with so many dog friendly restaurants, parks and beaches! Check out this quick list of our 10 favorite spots (ok, maybe a few more…) to enjoy with your own furry loved ones.

Rancho Sierra Vista/Satwiwa: Local Parks and Trails {Newbury Park}

One of the great things about living in the 805 is the abundance of parks and hiking trails.  Even though I have lived in the area pretty much my entire life, I have only just recently discovered how many great areas there are to hike. It’s a little overwhelming to me, actually.  Last week we mentioned Hill Canyon in Camarillo and this week we are highlighting Rancho Sierra Vista/Satwiwa Park in Newbury Park.

Rancho Sierra Vista/Satwiwa in Newbury Park is home to a wealth of hiking, biking, and horse trails.  The main entrance is at the cross street of Via Goleta and Potrero Road and …

Hill Canyon: Local Park & Trails {Camarillo}

Hill Canyon is a beautiful park area offering picnic & BBQ amenities, panoramic views, bird watching, 2 equestrian riding areas, and plenty of biking & hiking trails. As you drive down Hill Canyon Road off of Santa Rosa Road, you will see a parking lot just before the bridge and fire road entrance.

If you head toward the bridge, it will take you first to some picnic tables sitting underneath the shady trees and alongside the creek. There’s also some trail maps and park info on the …
