Surrounded by mountain ranges, forests, valleys, beaches, and deserts, the metropolitan area of Los Angeles is home to over 17 million people.
Escape the urban bustle at Venice Beach and Boardwalk and Carpinteria State Beach. Visit Santa Monica Pier and Old Pasadena for their historical value. Change things up with these side-trips from Los Angeles: Oxnard (The Collection at Riverpark & Oxnard Beach Park), Temecula (Peltzer Winery, Wine Tours & Tastings, & more) and Santa Monica (Montana Avenue & Santa Monica Farmers Market). Have a day of magic on the 12th (Sat) at Disneyland Park. The adventure continues: take a stroll through Abbot Kinney Boulevard, stroll through Laguna Beach, get some fabulous bargains at Outlets at Tejon, and see the interesting displays at The Getty Center.
