Los Angeles Vicinity, CA: Goin’ Back to Cali
The areas surrounding L.A. proper are extensions of the star-studded city itself–the tans are deep, the beach volleyball games intense, and the vibe uniquely Southern Californian.
It’s a rare occurrence to find a Los Angelean who actually knows where L.A. ends and the rest of Southern California begins. This sprawling metropolis is best defined by arid mountains to the East and an endless strip of coastline to the West.
If it’s a sleepy beach town you’re seeking, follow Pacific Coast Highway North to Ventura, a coastal community centered around one of California’s most scenic piers. Stick to the sand, go for a snorkel, or hike to a lookout point in the Santa Barbara Mountains.
Or head to the South Bay beaches, were voyeurism is the name of the game. Stop in Manhattan Beach, where bronzed moondoggies and beach bunnies mingle on “the strand,” an upscale boardwalk with beachfront homes and laid-back fish taco stands. Friendly locals welcome pick-up games of beach volleyball here, while Main Street’s teensy bikini and surf shops beckon shoppers after the California look.
Yes, there’s more to Southern California than the beach. Venture inland to the San Fernando Valley’s horse-crazed community of Westlake Village, or ride high above orange orchards on the wild roller coasters at Six Flags’ Magic Mountain in Valencia.
