2018

As I sit here and reflect on the incredible journeys 2017 has brought me, I can’t help but start thinking about what 2018 will bring!!

I’ve had an obsession with traveling, exploring, and discovering since I was a little kid, and the obsession has only GROWN!

A few months ago I created this web site with the hope to find really great places and share them for other people to enjoy, and I never expected it to evolve in the way that it has and become what it was CREATED to be: the site and RESOURCE people use to find the places they HAVE to go to while in a city! It really is a dream come true, and the expansion projected for next year is challenging but it’s going to be well worth it!

Here is SOME of what 2018 has in store, and what you guys can be looking forward to:

-New York City, New York

-Boston, Massachusetts

-South Carolina (Inman area)

-North Carolina (Kill Devil Hills area)

-Richmond, Virginia

-And possibly Memphis, Tennessee; Las Vegas, Nevada; parts of California

I hope to hear from you all about where you want to see featured in some of these places, or other cities you want me to explore! As always, feel free to email me at chelsea@youhavetogoto.com or comment on this post! Thank you all for your love and support this year!

Montaña de Oro State Park 

Montaña de Oro State Park in Los Osos, California is a must see! This beautiful park is home to several different hiking trails, camping sites, picnic areas, and and some of the most magnificent beaches! Getting to the park is exciting in itself between the tree and cliff lined roads, and the views of the beaches from above.

This park is HUGE, and there is a lot to explore. We spent close to 2 hours at the park and only saw a few of the beaches and walked the Bluff Trail. Along the trail we saw at least two different beaches (both pictured below), and views from the top of cliffs.

Along our journey, we saw a woman staring down a cliff-side in panic, and we found that her dog had fallen down the side and was stuck on a ledge. Dogs are NOT permitted along the trails (they ARE on the campsites), and for this very reason! The rescue team had to come out and save the dog, and fortunately were able to. Please keep your furry friends at home or where they’re permitted so they are remain just that!!

Anyhow, this was one of the most beautiful beaches I have been to yet, and I will be returning to view the rest of the park. (Bonus: entry is FREE!) So, if you’re looking for something to do when in the Los Osos area, you HAVE to go to Montaña de Oro State Park!
