Hi friends! Today I’m bringing you a few of my favorite central-coast California gems to visit when it’s safe to.

I’m all about being organized, especially when traveling whether near or far, so I’m obsessed with the Ricardo Beverly Hills luggage! I love the phone charging capabilities (SO handy) and just look at the interior — stunning!

My favorite little gems on the California central coast:

Pacific Grove
Pacific Grove is one of the most lovely places in California! It’s the perfect place to grab coffee and stroll by the ocean. There are so many lovely ways to spend your time – kayaking, sunbathing, admiring the victorian houses, you name it. It’s a sleepy and mellow town, which I love. I adore grabbing a book and reading on the beach!
Highlight: Check out Pavel’s Backerei for delicious pastries!

Aptos, between Santa Cruz and Monterey, is another sleepy town with a lot of charm! There are gorgeous, long beaches with plenty of room as opposed to some of the smaller beaches throughout the rest of Santa Cruz county. It’s especially great if you have a dog and you’re looking for a long beach walk.
Highlight: Stop by Manuel’s for delicious enchiladas.

Capitola village was designed to evoke Venice, Italy, and it shows! The colorful houses are perfect for a photo opportunity — or to just admire — from the beach.
Highlight: Stroll along the Capitola wharf!
