You've gotta stop at Safari Town on your way through Lincoln City. They have tons of beachy toys to get you ready for your day at the beach. It's just a small local shop, but that's what we like about it!
Paradowski's has it all. Whether it's for competitive reasons or more casual needs, they will have it. Their prices aren't very competitive, but if you need something in a hurry it is worth a visit to their shop for sure.
I live in Carlsbad, but make the drive to Pleats. They altered my dress for my sister's wedding, and it turned out perfectly! My sister also had her wedding gown altered there. They are friendly...all the time! Since the dress, I have had them hem 3 pairs of jeans. They come out perfect every time!
This is a great place to go with a large group. It's big, loud and has a great menu. Their food is delicious and reasonably priced. They take reservations for lunch too, and let you pre-order. Great for lunch breaks!
Witt's is a small surf shop located 1 block from the beach in downtown Carlsbad. They have surf supplies, clothing, sandals and skate supplies. It's a small shop, but it's fun to browse.
My husband and I went up to SLO for a weekend getaway. We used a SpaFinder gift certificate at La Bonne Vie Spa. We got a 90 minute couples massage. My husband got a sports massage and I got a prenatal massage. I was 7 months pregnant at the time, and it was the best massage I have ever had. They were so accommodating, making sure I was comfortable at all times. Overall, it was a wonderful experience and I would got back again for sure!
We love this surf shop. The Hawaiian islands have shops all over, but Kai Kane is one of our favorites. We love their selection of t-shirts and sweatshirts. My husband really likes their logo too!
When we lived in Orange County, this was our place. My husband's favorite was the create your own calzone. I swear he ate it once a month. Their menu is affordable and the portions are just the right size.
Tiger Tail salon is great! They use mostly Aveda products, which are just wonderful and natural! All stylists are friendly and helpful, especially if you are uncreative and boring with your hair like I am. Might take a while to get in for an appointment, but continue to check for cancellations. Going there is worth the wait for sure!
Dr. Duhamel is wonderful! When we found out we were pregnant, she is who we saw first. She shared in our excitement and made us feel comfortable from the very first weeks of pregnancy. She has young children of her own so seeing her is very reassuring. Always smiling, even when she was still working at 39 weeks pregnant...she is AWESOME!!
