Find festivals, food and new friends wherever you find a California beach.
Want to incorporate a little fame in your trip? Head to the Entertainment Capital of the World for a multitude of beaches during the vacation season. The Los Angeles metropolitan area not only grants visitors with the liveliness of the Santa Monica Pier and the famed Venice Beach Boardwalk, but also the family-friendly and mild waters of the Seaside Lagoon in Redondo Beach. Let’s just not forget the world-famous beaches of Orange County lying just south of L.A. Visit Newport Beach for its pristine Corona del Mar State Beach – a great place for surfing and diving, not to mention sunbathing and volleyball.
