Los Angeles with Six Flags or Universal Studios
Enjoy a weekend site-seeing in Los Angeles visiting Malibu, Venice Beach, Santa Monica, and Hollywood! The following day you can either go to 6 Flags Magic Mountain to experience the highest, fastest, most adrenaline pumping roller coasters in North America, or visit Universal Studios Hollywood and enjoy movie sets, rides, action, shows and more!
This excursion begins at 9:00 departure from the MTD transit center. We then drive along the gorgeous coastline from Rincon on to Malibu and into Santa Monica. Malibu is a 26 mile strip of the breathtaking Pacific Coast, nicknamed the "Bu" by surfers and locals. Malibu is famous for its warm sandy beaches and the many celebrated super stars of Hollywood that call it home!
Our first stop will be in Santa Monica. A great spot for shopping or a walk on the Santa Monica Pier. Which also marks the end of the legendary American Highway, Route 66! The pier has a mix of amusement rides and games at the Pacific Park and also a Ferris wheel along with restaurants.
Our next stop will be in Venice Beach. An eclectic city on the beach where many of LA's wackiest people seem to gather! The boardwalk is a virtual sidewalk circus. You'll see everything from musicians, mimes, comics, prophets, and fortune tellers to unusual street people! There are lots of funky shops there as well, making it the perfect spot to pick up souvenirs.
Our next stop will be in Beverly Hills where we will visit the world renowned shopping district, "Rodeo Drive!" This 3 block long stretch of boutiques and shops is world famous for its designer labels and haute couture fashion. We won't have time for serious shopping this trip, but keep your eyes open as you're likely to spot a celebrity or two!!
Our last stop of the day will be at the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Here you will see over 2,400 stars embedded in the pavement bearing tribute to some of the greatest names in the Entertainment Industry!
Afterward we will head to the hotel which is near 6 Flags for check in.
In the morning you will head to either 6 Flags or Universal Studios Hollywood, depending on the amusement park that you chose, to enjoy your day until departure at from Universal Studios at 6:00pm and 6 Flags at 6:30pm.
Return to Santa Barbara is at 8:00pm or earlier. We are able to drop off in Carpinteria at the IHOP or at the SB downtown Transit Center.
