Parke Puterbaugh and Alan Bishort, two self-described "beach bums,” have written nearly a million words on the subject of beaches and boast that they have "visited more beaches more often in the continental United States than anyone else.” It is very fitting then that the two have collaborated on this new edition of Moon California Beaches, covering all aspects of enjoying the Golden States’ famous coastline, including where to eat, play, tan, and even--should it ever happen--what to do on a rainy day. Puterbaugh and Bishort leave no stretch of sand uncovered, from the warm beaches of San Diego to the rugged, tree-lines coves of the Lost Coast. With straightforward advice, a large dose of humor, and revealing first-hand encounters with California culture at its finest, Moon California Beaches gives travelers the tools they need to create a more personal and memorable experience.
