Looking for trending and adventurous locations around Southern California? You came to the right place! My name is Erica Dean and welcome to my website, Secrets of SoCal! What started as a class project turned into a lifelong passion; Secrets of SoCal highlights an eclectic mix of instagrammable, edible and historical locations through the perspective of a Southern Californian. Some of my most popular posts have been about the Venice Canals, Salvation Mountain, and The Broad Museum.

I believe that a place is a large part of a person. After living on the East Coast for a year, I can first-hand say that nothing can replace the Golden State. Through the blog I currently produce, I aim to instill my love of Southern California in others. Thanks for stopping by!
