    From the Author:

    An honest, personal, hands-on family guide to California
    Susan LaTempa and I have been traveling California since our own childhoods, and we've spent the last 16 years seeing the state through our children's eyes. We worked hard to make this guidebook honest, personal, and practical. We steer clear of the chains and tourist traps, and steer readers to the places that really have local color and kid appeal. We're especially proud of the extensive outdoor recommendations, for all the cool things to do, from kayaking to camping to cycling along the beach. You'll find our favorite campsites, the best luxury resorts, restaurants that make parents and kids happy, loads of outdoor family adventures, and every sort of amusement, from Disneyland to real ghost towns.
