(p.351) Tour 5 To the Beaches
Los Angeles in the 1930s

This chapter describes a tour to the beaches which takes the following route: Los Angeles–Culver City–Venice–Redondo–Wilmington–Long Beach–Seal Beach–Huntington Beach–Newport–Balboa–Laguna Beach–Doheny Park; 81.9 m; Washington Blvd., Venice Speedway, Vista del Mar, US 101A. Most of this route follows the coast of Los Angeles and Orange counties, where oil and resort towns string out like beads of a giant rosary. From downtown Los Angeles the route runs directly across the thickly built-up coastal plain to the Pacific shore, then turns south, with the sea always in view. The shore route crosses tidal flats and regions of sand dunes, then winds along the edge of the shore palisades in southeastern Orange County.

Keywords:   Los Angeles, Culver City, Venice, Redondo, Wilmington, Long Beach, Seal Beach, Huntington Beach, Newport, Balboa
