If there has been too much talk recently of deadlines, homework, housework, and meetings, then it´s probably time to spend some quality time together away from the hustle and bustle of modern life! There really is no better place to escape to than the mecca that is Big Sur in California. It is a heavenly place that the whole family is destined to love. You can all learn to appreciate the small things, such as the sun rising over the Pacific Ocean, or the swathes of wildflowers blowing in the wind, or the clear air that fills your lungs. There is lots to do and see here, and the views alone are enough to keep you occupied for hours! You can enjoy long hikes through forested canyons and grassy hills, visits to waterfalls and rivers, and walks along sandy shores as the waves crash.
