Things to do on the Southern California Coast
The coast was made for adventure. Foodies, thrill-seekers, artists, and beach bums welcome.
- Wake up early for a surf. Locals recommend Newport Beach and Cardiff Reef for the best swells. If you’ve never caught a wave, there’s no better place to find surf lessons.
- Get back to nature. Lace up your sneakers and head out to hike the Hollywood sign, the Torrey Pines State Reserve, or get your desert digs in Joshua Tree National Park. For stargazing and other natural wonders, check out the Griffith Observatory and The Channel Islands National Park.
- Day trip the attractions. The Southern California Coast is a hub of entertainment. With Disneyland, the San Diego Zoo, Sea World, the Santa Monica Pier, and Balboa Park, there’s no shortage of activities to choose from.
- Pull up a chair and dig in. Whether you’re craving seafood, tacos, or everything in between, California has a wide range of cuisine. Locals recommend the Ironside Fish & Oyster Bar in San Diego, Guerrilla Tacos in Los Angeles, and Aqui es Texcoco in Chula Vista.
- Sightsee through arts & history. One thing that stands out are SoCal’s Old Town Spanish Missions—historic attractions you can find in San Diego and Santa Barbara (there are a total of 21 Missions throughout California). If you’re looking for awe and inspiration, check out The Getty Center or Natural History Museum in Los Angeles, and MOXI, The Wolf Museum of Exploration + Innovation in Santa Barbara.
