My backyard. We try to go visit relatives in Germany once every other year or so, and occasionally make day trips to LA, San Francisco or the Monterey area... but other than that we stay put. I live on the beach so every day is like a vacation

Most Californians I have known, never leave the state. They think the world revolves around California.

I drove way down the Baja Peninsula once - almost to La Paz - with some friends and we had a BLAST. We had no problems paddling out into the sea a bit and finding our own 'private' coves to camp on along the way. of course, it didn't hurt that we went in August (the off season down there -- too hot). The drive was pretty harrowing at times though, and I would not recommend it for the faint of heart of for ANYONE with kids.

No problems at the border, it just takes a long time coming back...

Here are some of the good things we did along the way:
1) Scuba/Snorkeling everyday and spearing fresh fish right next to where we were camped.
2) A secluded campground with your own palapa for $4 a night.
3) Luncherias
4) Gorgeous water to paddle in swim in where we encountered dolphins, seals and an occasional whale

Here were some of the bad things:
1) Corrupt cops in Ensenada that made is give them $100 to not go to jail.
2) Sharing a very narrow windy road with oncoming (speeding) trucks.
3) Pot holes big enough to drive right into and not get out of.
4) Stopping to repair a blown tire and realizing that the awful smell we sniffed was coming from a decapitated cow in the ditch next to us.
