If you don't happen to have time to tour the entire state of California, we found a place that almost seems like a microcosm of the state. You have your beaches, your surfers, your Redwood forests and, just an hour away, one of the state's largest and most cosmopolitan cities. Give up? Try Santa Cruz. Hugging some of California's most scenic coastline, this city offers a sampling of some of the state's most interesting attractions all in one relatively small area. We were amazed, for example, when we topped off a morning of beach sightseeing with a little seven-mile drive up to the sleepy town of Felton.

If you’re going to name a town for its greatest asset, the town fathers of Oceanside seem to have got that one right. Today more city than town, Oceanside is dressing up the city’s three and a half miles of wide, sandy beaches by bringing in new waterfront hotels, trendy restaurants and expensive homes and condos that all combine to beckon tourists from literally around the world. The old rap on Oceanside, home to Camp Pendleton, was that it was a military town and not the place to invest millions in your new beachfront home.

Mountain Avenue Elementary was Surf City, USA on Friday night as dads and their little surfer girl daughters enjoyed a night of hula-hoop races and California dreamin’ music at the Daddy Daughter Dance sponsored by Girls Scout Troop 943. The Girl Scouts decided that a daddy daughter dance was a great way to raise money for their troop and for a worthy cause; a portion of the money raised was donated to Save the Whales foundation. The beach party theme was complete with tropical decorations and dads dressed in their best Hawaiian shirts.

The name “Oxnard” doesn’t quite roll off the tongue like Catalina, La Jolla or Coronado, but the city of Oxnard does lay claim to some of the state’s most wide-open, accessible beaches and a host of nearby attractions that make it worth considering as base camp for your next beach getaway in the Golden State. Even though this part of Southern California boasts lots of sun, sand and scenery, the prices for your Oxnard getaway are likely to be a little less than more famous beach communities.

LA CAÑADA - With one of their top singles players reduced to being a spectator, it appeared as though the La Cañada High girls' tennis team would be at a monumental disadvantage. For most of the week, La Cañada's Cassie McKenzie had battled an illness. McKenzie couldn't overcome her cold in time when La Cañada met third-seeded Laguna Beach on Friday in a CIF Southern Section Division II second-round home match. PHOTOS: La Cañada vs. Laguna Beach girls' tennis CIF playoff With McKenzie shelved, La Cañada put up a valiant effort in a 10-8 defeat.

What fabulous, cool weather we have had during the first part of this month. Whoever thought that those two words would ever describe August weather in our area, for crying out loud? I hope my words don't jinx the situation. I have to keep pushing the thought away that we are soon going to get slammed by the unbearable heat that usually shows up in this month. Shhh, we'll be very quiet about it so we don't disturb the furies. -- This past week I made my annual pilgrimage down to the Laguna Art Festival and Pageant of the Masters.

LAGUNA BEACH — It appeared the game was won for the La Cañada High boys' water polo team when, with a one-goal lead, it forced a Laguna Beach turnover with 28 seconds left in the fourth quarter. La Cañada's Chase Borisoff grabbed the steal, which allowed the Spartans to cling to their lead and run out the clock by playing keep-away from the Breakers' defense. Then, Laguna got a turnover of its own with about 15 seconds left on the clock. The Breakers worked the ball around until Caleb Scott buried a Laguna goal to tie the game at 9 with five seconds left, sending it into overtime.

As August draws to a close, so does another season of the Summer Beach Bus service that is offered in the Foothills each year by the city of La Cañada Flintridge and Los Angeles County. The drive, traffic congestion and high price of gasoline can keep a day at Santa Monica Beach from being, well, a day at the beach. But with a round-trip ticket on the Summer Beach Bus costing $3 (just $1.50 for seniors age 60 and up, and disabled patrons), area residents have been taking advantage of the service since 1994.

The beaches of California always rank highly on those national lists of best beaches, but a good beach does not necessarily make a good beach town. Not all beach towns are created equal, and the Golden State runs the gamut from quaint to upscale. So maybe the best barometer for choosing your beach town is charm — in other words, it makes you feel like this is a true getaway, and it's where you get a real sense of place. You want it to be someplace special for someone special on that special getaway weekend.
