I'm looking for some ideas please. My husband and I are going to be in California for a couple of weeks(mid February). We are staying in Santa Barbara for 3 days then we move on to Malibu for 3 days and last but not least, we are going to be in Santa Monica for a little over a week. We were wondering if anyone could suggest any day trips for us while we are in Santa Monica? We've been to Long Beach and Huntington Beach on previous trips. We don't like to shop unless it's something unique-we're from Toronto and have pretty much the same shops as you have in Ca. We like the outdoors(walks, photography and drives), beaches (water activities and chilling out), gallery's and museums too. Last year we went on the unique and macabra Dearly Departed Tour. Very cool! Any other suggestions?
