    Central Park used to be my favorite place to run in America, but CdM has taken it's place as #1! Amazing views & there's a 100-step staircase (Fernleaf & Bayview) with other runners to motivate you!

    Avoid the parking lot if you can. Park in the residential area and walk on down to save money!

    Park up on Ocean rather than paying $15 for the lot. It's not a far walk and it's free!

    On a nice weather morning, grab a coffee at Starbucks or Brueggers at the corner of Coast Hwy and Goldenrod. Then walk straight down Goldenrod, over the footbridge, and down to the beach/bluffs.

    Corona Del Mar Jetty in Orange County is a quite exposed beach break that has quite reliable surf. Summer offers the best conditions for surfing. The best wind direction is from the north. Tends to re
