Hollywood
It's a popular place to visit, with all the touristy trappings that go with the name, but you'll also find a lot of great, lesser-known things to do there, too.

Long Beach
Long Beach is near the LA harbor, has a nice coastline and is the home of the fantastic Aquarium of the Pacific. It's a great place for a family getaway - and for the rest of us, too.

Redondo, Manhattan and Hermosa Beach
The so-called "South Bay" beach towns are less touristed, but a great place to get a feel for what SoCal coastal life is like.

Santa Monica, Venice Beach and Marina del Rey
