The City of Angels is well-known for her incredible beaches, famous stars and general fun in the sun and although that's already more than enough reason to make a trip to Southern California, Los Angeles still has yet more to offer; there's a little something for everyone. As soon as you've booked your hotel on the beach and finished packing your swimwear, you can check out this list for some great ideas about what to pencil into the itinerary while you're there!
1. The Automobile Driving Museum
Fun for the whole family and car enthusiasts alike awaits in El Segundo. Reasonably priced and conveniently accessible via the Metro, there's every reason to stop in to experience the automobile-themed exhibits and kids events offered every Tuesday-Sunday. The museum has over 130 cars on display! From antique to classic American muscle, they've got it all.
Manhattan Beach Boulevard runs from the Pacific coast and ends just shy of Interstate 110. There's plenty to keep you entertained throughout the day. Here are a few attractions along the strip, all culminating into a relaxing beachfront evening right around your Manhattan Beach hotel, The Sea View Inn..
Breakfast options are abundant on the boulevard. Blue Star Donuts features flavors such as raspberry rosemary buttermilk and poppy seed lemon buttermilk donuts. They even had a Bacon Maple Glazed donut! For those looking for a heartier or lighter breakfast, head over to Noah's Bagels for coffee, bagels, sandwiches, and other treats.
Start the morning off with a nice walk at the Alondra Community Regional Park. The park opens at sunrise and closes at sunset. Sites include a wooded prairie with a large lake over 53 acres. There are several other parks along the boulevard including Polliwog Park, Manhattan Beach Botanical Garden, and Manhattan Heights Park.
