As part of my trip (beginning 5.19) we'll be staying right near Universal and doing that one day and sightseeing for a few more days. On the last day in the area, we plan to go right out to Santa Monica, do the pier, etc. and then drive down the coast to Laguna (or so), and then end up in Anaheim right across from Disneyland by 9pm to see the fireworks (from the hotel). Anything I MUST see on that stretch?
Also, anything I need to avoid or can skip to save time? Would like 1 or 2 best beachs to stop at for a bit to get the "California vibe" (with wife and 2 kids 3 and7). All the other sightseeing will be brief photo-op type of stops along that stretch. Where are the best stops on PCH?
So, how should I proceed on that day? THANKS!
