What to do and what to see:

Surfboards, flip-flops, bikinis and convertibles are everywhere in sunny Malibu, located on the Western Pacific coast in Southern California. Once dubbed “The Riviera of America,” Malibu is home to several rich and famous celebrities. This 27-mile long stretch of coastline runs alongside the famed Pacific Coast Highway, a scenic and historic road from which motorists can view the ocean. Point Mugu State Park offers camping on the beach, and the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreational Area provides hiking, camping, picnicking, equine trail rides, and even geocaching opportunities for the tech-savvy tourist. The beach is the primary attraction in this area, and swimmers and surfers often catch a wave alongside the dolphins that frequent the shore. The renovated Malibu Pier is a great place to watch top-notch surfers while dining on fresh seafood, and wine lovers can enjoy tasting events at Malibu Wines. For the culturally inclined, the Malibu Lagoon Museum, the Getty Villa, the Adamson House and the Weisman Museum of Art should be on the go-to list. Whatever the season in Malibu, the rugged seaside beauty is sure to be one of your favorite vacation destinations.
