[b]May I add?:
We would add our personal favorite San Elijo State Beach to Frederick's great list.
...South Carlsbad State Beach is similar, another six miles north.
[b]And, may I comment?:
Silver Strand State Beach---gorgeous location on Frederick's list! One reminder---I believe they still only permit fully self-contained trailers, RV's.
Thank you George! I'm always happy to hear a visitor's opinion.
This local can sometimes become a little jaded; a fresh perspective would encourage me to try to play tourist in my own hometown.
