DeFelice Family: Camping in Rock Creek Valley

Our first camping trip to California's Rock Creek Valley happened by accident four years ago. I was anxious to get out of town and off the grid with the kids, so I quickly packed the truck with every piece of camping gear I stumbled over on the garage floor, and started driving north toward Mammoth Lakes. We had no reservations for a campsite, but I figured we'd find something.

DeFelice Family: Biking in the San Gabriel Mountains

I'll be the first to admit that sometimes our family adventures can be a little bit extreme for the average family looking to get outside for the day.

DeFelice Family: Crystal Cove

I love taking the kids to the beach, but in Los Angeles, going to the beach can sometimes be a struggle. Traffic, parking, crowds, and really not much to do once you're there. I get bored in a minute just sitting on the beach. I want to go somewhere, discover something and so do the kids. (Usually.) If a day at the beach is going to be a day of adventure and exploration, it means leaving the city beaches of Los Angeles behind and heading out of town.
