If you are looking for a unique, fun family vacation spot, check out Sand Dune Park in Manhattan Beach, California. The park is named after it's most attractive feature–a 100 foot sand dune located inside the 3 acre park, complete with hiking trails and a panoramic view from the top. Children can play safely in a small fenced in playground with swings, slides, and all the other playground equipment you can imagine. There is something to do for children of all ages, as well as adults. And it is a perfect place for family outings.
Other amenities include a picnic area with shaded picnic tables seating about 20 people and an open pavilion. Restrooms and drinking fountains are scattered throughout the park. You can bring your dog to enjoy the fun too, as long as it is on a leash. For those who love a good workout, climbing the dune will definitely not disappoint you, put on your tennis shoes and give it a try. There are endless possibilities of what you can do at Sand Dune Park. Pack up the family, the dog, and a picnic lunch and make your reservation.
