A drive I recommend to everyone. I feel like I’ve done this drive 1 million times. The reason: anyone who comes and visits we usually take them on this drive. Do not take the 405 when you are doing this drive. Take the 1 if you can all the way down. You’ll be a lot closer to the beach and there’s a lot of scenic points that you can stop at.
Starting point: Newport Beach, Balboa Island.
Ending point: San Diego Boardwalk.
La Jolla: These are the tide-pools and we spent hours there enjoying the sound of the waves and looking at all the different wildlife that was stuck in these tide pools. They are near La Jolla cove.
After the day finished we stopped and watched the sunset, while watching the surfers do their moves. Can’t get any better than that. Note to self: Get in the water and surf already!
