Two kids pose on hotel steps

Review of Avila Lighthouse Suites, Avila Beach

Overall, this hotel is a must for hotel-scouting families looking for something kid-friendly. It’s perfect for children in the hotel amenities, setup, and location. But, it’s also special because not only are your kids’ needs accounted for (and who are we kidding – they’re the bosses anyway), but the adults also feel like they’re on a pampered beach vacation.  The hotel is steps from the ocean, there are complimentary white fluffy towels in the pool area and there’s a free waffle bar with whipped cream in the morning.

I’m seeing #TopNine posts popping up left and right on Instagram lately. Sick of them yet? 😂. Because just when you thought they FINALLY were over … I’m bringing you one more set.

But don’t worry, it’s not a look back. It’s a plan. A plan for adventure. And I call that plan … California’s Top Nine Wonders – Kiddo Edition.
