Quote from: BooksCatsEtc on July 25, 2017, 10:57:06 AMIf you enjoy driving for the scenery, I'd recommend going south on Pacific Coast Highway from Huntington Beach. You'll be right on the coastline most of the time and there's a number of artsy towns that way you might be interested in exploring. There's also Mission San Juan Capistrano (small, but very pretty) and, yes, the Nixon Library is down that way.The scenery driving north on PCH is really beautiful once you turn off into Venice Beach past LA proper (which can take a while and it's pretty much all industrial areas unless you take the freeways). Venice is nice to wander around, Malibu is about 26 miles of stunning coastline and Santa Barbara is another very artsy town, if you have the time to drive up there.Are you going to be here on 8/21? We're not in the direct path of the eclipse, but So Cal should see some of it.

For an adventure, take the ferry from Long Beach out to Santa Catalina Island. You can do that on a day trip. So, Day 1 - Long Beach and Queen Mary; Day 2 - Avalon, Santa Catalina by ferry. Compliments of Ecurb's Economy Tours.
