LA Westside, beach city is "as busy as it gets". Tons of residents, day trippers, tourists, surfers, shoppers & locals alike flock to this mecca of Los Angeles on the coast. Be warned of traffic jams, lots of buses, public parking garages w/ fees and thousands of people - everywhere. Walk to restaurants & shopping, as well as historic pier & beaches. The ocean view park on the cliffs is a great place for a picnic or afternoon stroll. Get away from your desk early & take a relaxing walk. HWY 1 = Pacific Coast Highway can get backed up with traffic at afternoon rush hour. Plan your coastal trips accordingly.
