Default Coming to the left coast 20th to 29th,what to do?

Going to be in and around Anaheim for a week,I have a convention there on the 27th to 29th.It sure would be awsome if one of you left coast folks would maybe offer up a real ocean ride to a great laker.I'll have wheels and would be happy to drive to wherever is necessary to catch a ride.

What sights or events should I put on my DO NOT MISS list?I have 7 days to hang out before the convention?

Good idea Audio,unfortunatley I really don't want to spend a week off work getting swatted in the back of the head by the other half Well,maybe a little scenery observation at the beach would be ok

I might not be in town the weekend of the 20th, and it sounds like you're working the 27-29th?

Looks like your a week late for the Scope thing
and working for the Ventura race and one of
the boats crashed at the
Pittsburg Race (Kidstuf)
Sounds like a lot of work
to fix it.

If you drive down to Oceanside or maybe just Dana Point I will take you for a ride in my BatBoat. I remember I once asked for directions to the castle in Toronto and somebody drove 5 miles out of his way to make sure we found it. I guess that qualifies for me to drive an extra half hour to Dana Point.

Lake Shrine in Pacific Palisades and Huntington Gardens in Pasedena are both beautiful gardens if you like that sort of thing.

Venice Beach is where you see the bikinis if you prefer babes. North Hollywood is where to go if you don't ;-)

San Diego is where the LA people go on the weekend to get away or San Francisco is a must see if you have never been there.

Yosemite National Park is phonemonal and Lake Tahoe is great if you don't have a loud boat.

Not really working that weekend,attending a conference/technical training/convention.Most official functions end around lunch time each day.
I will be around all week looking for fun and exciting things to do besides trying to look at beach girls without getting swatted too often

I threw up this post expecting to hear about loads of interesting things to do from all the west coasters and so far Audio and Tom are the only ones with suggestions.Is there really that little going on in California?

Come on folks,where are the hot spots,where are the interesting spots,both natural and man made?

Inquiring tourist minds want to know

Default Anaheim

Close to Anaheim is Newport Beach and Costa mesa. Lottsa happening there. Especially Newport Beach and Balboa.

Theres a nizza Sports bar and great Italian restaurant in the mall close to the Marriott Suites in Costa Mesa ( I recommend that as a place to stay).
There are many sites to see

I used to live in Woodland Hills but did a lots of goofing off (errr, consulting) in those areas. Then there is always Blacks Beach, still totally nude I think. Thats the good thing the bad is too many AC/DC people there.
I'll try and remember some specific places. I havent been back there since I became a right coaster in Florida.
Take care..have fun
marc

Careful: Strange things happen out there:
