Malibu beaches have a storied history because of famous residents and expensive properties. However, a cousin is just down the coast in Venice. Waters are warmer with several local attractions and events ready to be explored. During the trip, locations will look familiar with the boardwalk and park seen in a variety of movies. Roller skate or skate board on the 17-mile path that runs along sand or pay a visit to infamous Muscle Beach Gym. Boogie and surf boards can be rented from vendors that line the boardwalk so enjoy the waves.
Grauman’s Chinese Theater is centrally located on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The entire journey spans 18 blocks on Hollywood Boulevard and Vine Street with picture taking opportunities. Return after a bite of tasty pizza at Stefano’s to take in the latest movie. After the show head over to Pig N'' Whistle Restaurant for a little celebrity gazing.
It never rains in Southern California is more than a popular song lyric. Tourists appreciate this climate feature as they plan year round getaways with stops along the coast or inland. There''''s the smallest chance of rain during spring and fall, and the clean waves in September through November are perfect for surfing. Temperatures remain warm to dry with loads of sun and winds alternating between the ocean and mountains. Winters are practically non-existent as far as snow or plunging thermometers are concerned.
