DAY 1 — Los Angeles - Malibu

Leave Los Angeles along the Pacific Coast Highway to the fabled Malibu Beach. Palm trees and movies stars, freeways and billboards, a stunning coastline and a lone surfer riding the waves. It's all part of the southern California experience. Lodging: Malibu Beach Inn

DAY 2 — Malibu

Full day at leisure to explore nearby Beverly Hills, Hollywood, the Sunset Strip, Pacific Palisades and Santa Monica. A visit here is not complete unless you include the astonishing Getty Museum, which has assumed its place as one of the great museums of the world. You'll see why. Lodging: Malibu Beach Inn

I’ve always dreamed of seeing California this way. We took our time and just soaked it in. It was a great second honeymoon.
