Southern California souvenirs to take home

Hello, and welcome to my home! If you’re going to be visiting Southern California, you’ll probably want to take a little something home to remember your time here by. Sure, you could head into your nearest tourist shop and buy a shirt that says “Los Angeles” or “San Diego” on it, pick up a few postcards, and leave on your merry little way.

Nestled in the relatively sleepy seaside town of Carlsbad (a.k.a. home) is the Calavera Nature Preserve, where one can go on a leisurely afternoon hike past a tiny lake and to an extinct volcano! Who ever said there’s nothing cool in the suburbs?
