The Covid-19 pandemic and resulting quarantine have more people getting into the great outdoors than in recent history. While we’ve become a culture that spends much time indoors, many of our favorite activities are no longer safe during the pandemic.

Mount Pacifico Campground ($8-$12 a night)
Mount Pacifico Campground is just about a half-hour drive from LA and you can camp overnight there for $8-$12 a night. This is a great spot for a family that’s really looking to get away from it all. It’s a 10-mile hike to the campground, which offers ten primitive camp spots. You can hike to the top of the mountain for an amazing view in all directions.

At Crystal Cove State Park, located between Laguna Beach and Corona del Mar, you’ll find a rustic cottage awaiting your family.
