One of my favorite things to do is to go to the beach. Sunny or cloudy, the beach has a calming beauty which can wash away all your worries, at least while you’re there.
California has some beautiful beaches. Although southern California is better known for their sunny beaches, northern and central California have some hidden gems of their own.
If you have a four-legged best friend (which I do), they’re welcome there too!
Here are the top 10 northern California beaches I’ve been to.
