Enjoy Southern California

I enjoy all things Southern California.  So much so, I even DVR Huell Houser's various programs to plan many day trips with the family.  Occasionally, I will share some of those experiences here.  For example, my family went to Doheny State Beach for a day of bike riding and kite flying (see image below).  What do you enjoy visiting here in our area?
