Beach Swings and Playgrounds - California Kids Vacations


California beach swings and playgrounds are located at quite a few California Beaches. There are some kids vacation beaches in California that are custom made for the perfect California kids vacation. When you travel with children, and especially youngsters, how well you know that there's a time of day that they need to play. Kids require fresh air, sunshine and outdoor activities to wear them down.  The beaches are ideal but are especially welcoming for moms and dads who discover swings.  You'd think that such a simple item would be a part of every California beach, in fact. But for a variety of reasons, you'll find the swings at beaches where the city, state entity or municipality has recognized that this a community enhancement.  > More

We're always out there looking and hoping to add more beach swings and playgrounds to our list as tourist destinations come on board with this type of  attraction for the perfect demographic. Families with children promote a wholesome, friendly atmosphere at California's beaches.  It's proven that parents will spend more time and money at beach destinations when their children are happy.  The sand generally makes for a softer cushion should a child fall (hopefully not) but all in all, swing sets have been no more of a problem or liability to beach operating entities than they are at normal parks where kids play.  The only element that poses a greater challenge at the beach is the moisture and rust but still, places such as Santa Monica, Santa Barbara and Ventura seem to handle the conditions without great expense. These wonderful beaches offer a place for local kids and visitors to come enjoy the sunsets, the daylight and fresh air that's available outside the door of their houses and hotels where families stay to enjoy a beach vacation.
