Baker & Taylor
Explores the best beaches, tidepools, inns, bed & breakfasts, surfing, hiking, camping, museums, and nature preserves on the California coast

Norton Pub
Emphasizing hidden beaches and affordable lodging and dining, this travel companion covers the entire coast, from San Diego to Redwood National Park. The spectacular, much loved California coast is a complex and diverse place, culturally and geographically. What with exclusive private areas in the south and steep cliffs in the north, beach access can be an intimidating journey. The aims of this guide are simple: to lead travelers to every inch of the coast worth visiting, and to provide them with savvy, up-to-date information on beaches, nature preserves, sports, museums, lodging, and restaurants. Icons throughout the book alert readers to the best places to take the family; to find solitude or a romantic inn; to surf or hike; to visit museums and historic sites; to shop in an urban area; and to go bird-watching or tide-pooling. Interviews and profiles of people who live and work along the coast--writers, surfers, Coast Guard patrol--provide insight and humor.
