West of LA proper, this gem sitting on the shore of the Pacific Ocean is famous for its lavish homes, celebrity spottings, and beautiful stretches of beach. Highlights of this hyper-trendy SoCal region include the famous Pacific Coast Highway, the J. Paul Getty Museum, and the Old Topanga Canyon Boulevard, one of the most scenic drives in the LA area. Great dining spots are prominent too. Plan to spend an entire afternoon exploring the PCH and stopping off at some of the most upscale shopping centers on the coast. And be sure to bring a camera. Numerous pull-off areas provide terrific vistas of the rugged California coast – these are sights you'll never want to forget.
