Stay Cool Before Heading Back to School

It may be hard to believe, but summer is almost over. With the back to school rush comes a desire to fill what remains of summer with a few more fabulous outings and adventures – preferably ones that will lower your temperature during the dog days of summer.  Here are the best ways to keep cool until it’s time to head back to school.

Head to one of LA’s kid friendly beaches

There’s no better way to bask in the final days of summer vacation than to head to the shore. Let the ocean breezes cool you down and have fun chasing the tide. Walk along the pier or rent a surrey bicycle, fill it with your family and cruise down the boardwalk.

These are our picks for beachy spots to hit with kids.
