The first stop is Ventura, California. Across from Figueroa Plaza. It’s small business Saturday so the streets are lined with locals and tourists buying things they most likely don’t need. Nevertheless, it’s a day full of activity throughout the city centre.
As you leave Ventura and pass both Los Angeles and Orange County, you’ll find yourself south of San Clemente in the City of Oceanside. A perfectly good place to make your last rest stop before reaching San Diego. Take a walk along the pier and stay for the perfect California sunset. If it’s earlier in the day, take a short walk to the house below.
After leaving Oceanside, continue south to the Balboa Park and the San Diego Zoo. You might get lucky and arrive just in time for one of their outdoor music concerts.
