Beach Cities Vacation Packages

If you’re California Dreamin’, your dreams are likely to involve these warm, sunny spots along the Pacific Ocean coast near Los Angeles.

Los Angeles County’s western border seems like one long stretch of sand and picturesque rocks along the ocean, but it’s actually composed of Beach Cities with distinct cultures and appeal. Come for sun, sand and waves and enjoy each town’s unique attractions.

Starting about 30 miles (50 kilometers) west of LA, Malibu has 21 miles (34 kilometers) of beaches, with surfers, celebrities and surfing celebrities, such as Rob Lowe. Mingle with locals at beach shacks or trendy restaurants. Leo Carrillo State Park, Surfrider and El Matador are among Malibu’s favorite beaches. Malibu sunsets at Point Dume State Park are so inspiring that a cocktail has been named after them. Heading southeast, stop at Pepperdine University to enjoy stellar cliff-top views of the ocean. Imagine you’re in ancient Greece or Rome when you see Getty Villa’s art, architecture and gardens.

Moving south, Santa Monica’s smaller beach has lifeguard stations, a paved walkway and access to restaurants. Follow the 22-mile (35-kilometer) Marvin Braude Bike Trail, which continues south to Torrance, on a rented bicycle or e-bike. Parallel to the beach and bike trail, the pedestrian-only Third Street Promenade has shopping, dining and street performers. Come to Santa Monica Pier to walk out over the ocean at the official end of Route 66, visit Pacific Park amusement park and see marine animals at the Santa Monica Pier Aquarium.

The Venice Beach Boardwalk is as much fun as Venice Beach itself, with street performers, people watching and bodybuilders at Muscle Beach. Inland, find shops, boutiques and varied dining choices.

Stroll through Marina del Rey, where yachts line the marina’s many piers, and take a cruise or rent a sailboat. Watch birds in the Ballona Wetlands. The cities of El Segundo, Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach and Redondo Beach border the continuous sands of their namesake beaches.

Finally, visit Long Beach and Avalon on Santa Catalina Island, southern Los Angeles Beach Cities, for museums, a casino, outdoor fun and the RMS Queen Mary.
