Ventura, officially San Buenaventura, is the county seat of Ventura County, California, United States. The coastal site, set against undeveloped hills and flanked by two free-flowing rivers, has been inhabited for thousands of years. European explorers encountered a Chumash village, referred to as Shisholop, here while traveling along the Pacific coast. They witnessed the ocean navigation skill of the native people and their use of the abundant local resources from sea and land. Wikipedia

 319     123     30     1
  Duration: 0.5 hrs

Malibu is a beach city in western Los Angeles County, California, situated about 30 miles west of Downtown Los Angeles. It is known for its Mediterranean climate and its 21-mile strip of the Malibu coast, incorporated in 1991 into the City of Malibu. The exclusive Malibu Colony has been historically home to Hollywood celebrities.

Ventura itinerary, California 1
 0     57     30     2
  Duration: 2 hrs

California is a great road trip state, so if you’re coming by car, you’ll have endless options for exploring. I personally recommend Highway 1 and 395–the first follows the coast and the second leads to the Eastern Sierra Nevada Mountains. A few cautions however if you’re new to road-tripping in California. First, traffic in all of our metropolitan areas can be awful. If you’re driving through cities like Los Angeles and San Francisco, allow plenty of extra time. Second, allow time for extra stops. You never know when you’ll see a cool roadside attraction, state park or beach, or gorgeous viewpoint.
