In South California, there are a few coastal cities like Santa Monica and Long Beach. Santa Monica is a must go place. Apart from Santa Monica, I want you to know about Long Beach, another beautiful city. I would recommend the area that has Aquarium of the Pacific. A lot of yachts are parking at the bay; seagulls are flying in the sky; a lot of people are walking around. XD
Except looking at gorgeous scenery, you can ride on a bike, going on a cruise, or going to aquarium. There are a lot of stalls and shops. If you are a big fan of shop around, stalls there are your best choices. Today, I chose to go on a boat tour. 45-minutes boat ride with explanation from the captain, it is a good choice of activity.

After the boat trip, dinner time had arrived. There are a lot of choices of restaurants such as Yard House or Outback steakhouse. I would also like to recommend a place for dessert – The Funnel House. I believe funnel cake is their main desert. I order a fundae tonight. It is a funnel cake with ice cream with syrup on top.
If you get tired of thinking what to do at weekend, and you do not want to go too far away from your home, Long Beach is a good choice.
