Shops and restaurants will be open (unless they are usually closed on a Monday). 12/21 will be less traffic in the area - although for some the holidays have already begun. After Christmas people do more traveling so it will be busier in the area 12/28. Its a fun place to go - but check the forecast if to see what type of weather it will be be. Seeing the ocean, enjoying a nice meal, etc. are always nice - rain or shine - but checking the forecast will help to decide how to dress for the day. Cheers and Happy Holidays!

I don't know where you are coming from to do a day trip, but you will find it is not enough time. You should try and spend the night. Most shops & restaurants will be open on the 21st as well as the 28th. Things will be busier on the 28th. Again, try and make a multi-day trip out of it and not just a day trip.

Great!! I think we will plan for the 28th instead of the 21st. We are driving from SF area and we only have the day, plan to drive very early to enjoy the daylight and drive back at about 5 or 6 when it gets dark....maybe in the summer we can can plan to stay for a weekend. Thanks!!
