Before you pack for the beach.....

As a beach-going mama, I have made two big mistakes with my boys and our beach adventures. The first mistake was last year when my youngest was exposed to a bacteria at Doheney Beach that gave him a horrible rash and diarrhea. I should have checked this website to see the pollution levels, but I just thought that all of our local beaches were safe.

My second mistake was just this last week when I invited several families to the beach during extreme high tide. This mistake could have been resolved easily by checking the tide report, but instead we were all trying to find safe spots on the beach to keep our young children from being trampled by the huge waves.

I love having information that can help keep our families safer, so be sure to check the tide report and pollution levels before going to your local beach.

Thanks for the tips. I live in AZ and plan to come to the beach in August for the first time with 4 year old twins. I am not from the area obviosly and wondered if you could write or post some great beaches near Legoland that are kid friendly.
Thanks and I look forward to more tips from you. Also planning a trip to Disneyland in October and would love some local advice.

Great to know... my boys keep begging me to go to the beach... I sure don't need them to get sick...UGH!
There must be a site for beaches north of Huntington Beach... do you know that too?
