"Watch more sunsets than netflix"
Solana Beach was one of those towns I'd always drive past but never thought twice about. It wasn't until earlier this summer that I discovered how special of a spot Solana Beach is, and now it's one of my favorite pit-stops on the way to San Diego! There's a ridiculously delicious coffee shop called Lofty Coffee (try the Turkish latte) located in the adorable Cedros Avenue Design District, which is full of eclectic and modern shops. There's also a visitor-friendly beach just walking distance from the train station that I recommend checking out. I was especially lucky the other week because I got to enjoy the setting sun before catching a train ride up to Orange County. It was refreshing to see young families, couples from all walks of life, surfers, and groups of friends come together to enjoy the beachscape and glowing sky. There's something about the incandescence of a sunset that nourishes the heart and soul.
