Hey everyone! first time being in California for 8 days. I dont know when I will ever get to come back so trying to fit in as much as possible. 5 days at theme parks so thinking about making the drive up from long beach to at least spend a couple of hours here and then drive back. I feel like i HAVE to come out and see this so any tips or concerns? according to my iphone the trip will be about a 5 hour drive thinking about leaving long beach at 5 am getting there about 10-11 with traffic staying till about 5-6 and then driving back. Dont really want to make the brunt of the drive when its too dark i heard the driving is tricky. I would really appreciate the information if this seems to unrealistic to do considering just going to Catalina but highly doubting it would be as memorable.
