Just south of downtown Los Angeles, San Pedro is a small seaside community best known as the home of the Port of Los Angeles. For those looking to soak in the sun, Cabrillo Beach is rife with swimmers, scuba divers, confused cross-country skiers, and windsurfers tackling the elements as massive cargo ships pass in the background. Cabrillo essentially spans two beaches: one oceanfront area where surfing is popular and a separate, more gentle area ideal for young swimmers within the harbor. The nearby, Frank Gehry–designed Cabrillo Marine Aquarium houses a wide range of aquatic creatures, including black sea nettles, jellyfish, and california sea lions.Read the Fine Print for important info on travel dates and other restrictions.

When Brian McInerney reflects on the humble beginnings of Wheel Fun Rentals, Inc., he points to his childhood passion for bikes. "As far back as I can remember, I had a real love affair with bicycles," he recalls. During a trip to Italy in 1987, Brian's affinity for cycling blossomed into a full-fledged obsession when he spotted locals' transporter of choice, the surrey. Inspired, he began importing the Italian four-wheelers to a rental business in the U.S. that eventually expanded into Wheel Fun Rentals, now a nationwide web of shops that also loans out bikes, electric cars and mopeds, and man-powered watercraft. Adventuresome athletes can also compete in activities such as surrey scavenger hunts and blindfold obstacle courses navigated via shouted instructions from a seeing teammate or exceptionally long rounds of trial and error.

While the techs at Coast Carwash are experts at washing dirty autos, their expertise doesn't end there. They've got everything they need to make sure grungy cars leave looking as good as the day they drove off the dealership lot. Waxes by Meguiar's and Nanoskin help seal in the car's restored shine and repel incoming filth, while Meguiar's leather treatments keep seats and other interior surfaces soft, supple, and crack-free. While they're inside, techs can also freshen the upholstery and carpets, shine all gauges, switches, buttons, and vents, and remove any foul odors left behind by forgotten take-out containers or hitchhiking trout salesmen. Tears in upholstery or isolated scratches on the car's finish are swiftly brought to rights, and the crew can also handle full headlight restorations or repair cracked windshields to ensure each auto drives away safely.
