Celeb Chat: Summer Hot Spots

When thinking vacations, don't forget about what's in your backyard. My family loves the kid-friendly San Diego area (just two hours away) with Legoland, the zoo's Safari Park, and La Costa Resort. Sometimes, simple is best -- it seems like a lot of celebs I talked to agree!

With a house full of boys -- including 3-year-old twins -- the Modern Family star digs stay-cations.

"As we still hate getting on planes with all three boys, our favorite vacation spots are local-ish. Santa Barbara is only a drive away: Between the main beach in Carpenteria (followed by burgers at The Spot) and the dog-friendly Arroyo Burro, my boys are happily exhausted by naptime. If anyone has energy left over, we go to the Natural History Museum. The bird and bug exhibits are great."
