The Baked Bear

This is the time of year where people find themselves heading to the gym and drinking juice cleanses to get that bikini body. But a mouthwatering ice cream sandwich shop might put those plans on hold. The Baked Bear is located in Pacific Beach, Petco Park, La Costa, Carmel Valley, and Carmel Mountain. Needless to say, The Baked Bear is a SoCal phenomenon. Cofounders Shane Stanger and Rob Robbins are on a mission to spread joy and bring a smile to every customer’s face, one ice cream sandwich at a time.

Thousand Steps Beach

Who needs a boyfriend when you always have a beach by your side? Well technically it is an hour or so away from San Diego, but Laguna Beach has it all! It is a hidden gem waiting to be discovered. Seriously, when people say hidden, they mean it: you have to walk down more than 200 steps just to get to the beach. Once you get there, walk a few steps to the left and you will be faced with caves and amazing tidepools. The location is 9th Ave & Pacific Coast Hwy Laguna Beach, CA 92652. Have fun and surf’s up!
