200 trips in Southern California

200 trips in Southern California

This collection of play days is designed to give you hundreds of options, sprawling across seven counties. Nature, culture, show biz, kid stuff, tea rooms, biker bars, you name it. And I know an adventure can go south in a hurry if your first destination turns out to be a dud or the day is deadened by too much driving. So I've been to every one of these places myself, chosen favorites, and made micro-itineraries from the spots that seem to fit together best, geographically, historically, thematically, logically.

The tourists think big. Arriving in Southern California, they expect to conquer Disneyland and Hollywood, perhaps on the same day, in between the surfing and snowboarding. The locals think small. Tracing tight little loops between home and work, they dodge freeways and alien neighborhoods. So whether you're a tourist or a local in Southern California, you're probably leaving some fun on the table.

This is our bid to fix that. This collection of play days is designed to give you hundreds of options, sprawling across seven counties. Nature, culture, show biz, kid stuff, tea rooms, biker bars, you name it. And I know an adventure can go south in a hurry if your first destination turns out to be a dud or the day is deadened by too much driving. So I've been to every one of these places myself, chosen favorites, and made micro-itineraries from the spots that seem to fit together best, geographically, historically, thematically, logically. I've also left a little room for improvisation. Or a nap. Your call.
