In Long Beach, you’ll find yourself in the busiest port in America which is actually a combined port complex with Los Angeles.  From here you’ll find the gateway to one of the most dramatic coastal drives in California. The Palos Verdes peninsula provides perfect access to the pretty coastal towns of Hermosa, Redondo, and Manhattan Beach. You can see some of the largest tankers and cruise ships passing under one of two span bridges while en route to Friendship Park that serves as a monument to peace with South Korea, set in a beautiful 123-acre green expanse.

While a bit of a drive, Idyllwild is a beautiful little town with views of an amazing desert scrubland. If you go far enough in you get to see the alpine forest, with cute shops, eateries, and some serious ambiance. You can walk around Lake Hemet, and even bring the sleeping bags to camp on a gorgeous night. It does get a little chilly, so be sure to bring layers, but the cold is definitely worth the views, experience, and wildlife.
