40 MILES ON PCH

From Oxnard in the north to L.A. and Orange County to the south, a day spent on the Pacific Coast Highway is going to be a full one. Take Leo Carrillo State Beach, for example, with more than a mile of sandy shore (great for swimming, surfing, and windsurfing) as well as some of the best tide pools around. Roadside restaurants like Neptune's Net are hard to pass up, as surfers and surgeons alike come for calamari burgers and fried clam. In Malibu, movie star mansions beckon as does the world-renowned Getty Villa with its magnificent collection of Greek and Roman art, and Santa Monica's famous pier stands ready to cap off a busy, fun day.
