Winter Fun in SoCal 2016

Hello Fall, Winter is Just Around the Corner!

Now that Halloween is over I always feel like the rest of the year goes so fast.

Thanksgiving is just weeks away and with that you have the Holidays in full effect. 

Holiday Gift Guides are making it to social media already and with all the shopping ahead I always like to look at what fun I can have with my family too!

Here is a list (I will feature specific blog posts on some) of the fun things to do in SoCal that I am finding or have done in the past.
