travel time from lax

I will be arriving into lax mid afternoon, end of July. By the time I get my rental car it will be rush hour, mid week.

How long would it take from Lax to Laguna/Dana pt. during weekday rush hour??

Would Santa Monica be a better stopping point for the first night?

What are the beaches like in Santa Monica?? Is it kid friendly?

From LAX,there is a car pool lane(2+persons) on the 405 freeway all the way to Dana Point.

During the rush hour it will take around 2 hours in the car pool lane to get to Laguna and Dana Point.

Santa Monica is the opposite direction so I would just go to Laguna/Dana Point since the beaches are the best there.
