Hello! After reading the posts I would like to add that you might want to consider taking the boat out to Catalina Island. It is a fun day trip. Also Balboa Beach was worth seeing. Of course Rodeo Drive, movie stars homes, get map and drive it yourself. Time permitting a live TV show would be fun. Laguna Beach with its cliffs as well as Laguna Nigel, I think it is called. We only flew into Lax for week, 2x but have always wanted to drive the coast like you. Have great trip!!!!!
