After a long and stressful week at work, you need to find a way to relax. And what could be more relaxing than a night out under the stars, just feet from the Pacific Ocean? Pack a cooler with your favorite foods, bring a long your tent, a sleeping bag, some tunes, and your closest friends or loved ones, and you’ve got the recipe for a truly relaxing little vacation. One of the more popular places to camp along the coast is Doheny State Beach, which is really two parks in one. It has a traditional day-use beach area to the north and a camping area to the south. The camping area even has some campsites that are just steps away from the beach.
During the day, Doheny has all the great activities that California is known for. You’ll find plenty of surfing here, with lots of tide pools and a lovely visitor center that offers year-round education programs on everything from Native American studies to marine and animal life in the area. Though, it’s most known for it’s surfing.
At night, prepare for some very scenic camping, with lots of beautiful views and that ocean air that you really can’t find anywhere except at the beach. On a clear night, pull the sleeping bag out of the tent and sleep under the stars, or if it’s chilly then curl up with your loved one by the campfire. It is the perfect spot for a quick getaway for two.
Head over to Doheny Beach in the SLS AMG GT Roadster from Mercedes of Encino. You can put the top down and cruise in style to your destination, enjoying the wind in your hair and the sun on your arms as you get ready to enjoy a quiet weekend of rest and relaxation.
