Make Time for Family Time


There's never enough time. Make some when you come to Cinnamon Shore. 

A study from a SoCal tourism board found that families only spend just 37 minutes of quality time together on weekdays. Of the 2,000 surveyed, 60% of those with school-age kids say life is “hectic.”

If you’re longing to slow down and reconnect, book time at the beach! Many Cinnamon Shore guests say family time is the best part about a stay in our little village. 

“Relax and make sweet memories with my family.” --Elise H.

 “After years of letting busy schedules get the better of us, we decided to come together for some family fun for the first time in forever…” --Sean L.

 “We had the best family weekend! We tell all our friends and can’t wait to come back. Cinnamon Shore is the perfect amount to relax, chill + adventure
--Shannon C.
