If you're over the beach and unsure of what to do, we know of the perfect place. There's a private forest where you can hike with goats in California. And the best part? It's pretty affordable too.
This unique Airbnb experience will take you to a working ranch in the Angeles National Forest. You wouldn't believe that this slice of serenity is only 1.5 hours away from downtown LA.
For $45 a person, you and your friends can take a trip here and learn about the art of shepherding. Just make sure your group has 10 or fewer people.
The hike around the 70-acres of land is more like a gentle walk with these adorable creatures. It will last about 90 minutes and there are select dates available through May 2020. So if this sounds like something you'd love to do, you should book a date ASAP.
You'll start the day off by learning some safety tips from the owners and a few facts about guiding the herd. Most of the trip will consist of moderate inclines, grazing breaks for the animals, and learning about the landscape around you.
Currently, you'll have about 100 billies accompany you on your journey.
When the stroll with the animals is almost over, you and your group will head back to the barn, where you can meet and pet the goats.
According to the owners, they enjoy all the love. It's even possible that the herd will have new editions to their family in the kidding pens that you can meet too.
After you're done giving attention to the cuddly animals, you'll be treated to freshly sliced apples and homemade caramel made from goats' milk.
This adventure is the perfect place to bring your BFF or SO, especially if they love animals, and if you're looking to surprise them with something special.
