After spending a few days in the LA Valley area, we will be driving down to San Diego. We will have time for a few hours of stops along the way. I was thinking of stopping to check out the Venice canals and some of the beaches.
Does this sound like a good plan? If so, which beaches would you recommend as the prettiest or most interesting along the way? Are there any other viewpoints or activities along the way that we should make time to check out?
I posted this in the LA forum as well, but then realized that not all SDers will necessarily read that forum, and some of the beaches that look really are actually closer to SD, so I figured I'd post here as well. Thanks!
