Famous landmarks (Beverly Hills, Hollywood), international venues/restaurants, sports (from bike paths to surfing to skiing) . . . there are enough activities in and around Los Angeles to please everyone.  There are museums of art, science and culture. The shopping is world class whether you are on a budget or you are ready to splurge - there are plenty of stores and shopping areas to chose from.

The amusement parks in Southern California are the best in the world. Disneyland, Universal Studios and Knott's Berry Farm are all within an hour's drive. Six Flags Magic Mountain, Wild Animal Park and Sea World are between one and two hours drive. Although it may be hard to believe one place can have it all, Southern California also has the mountain resorts of Lake Arrowhead and Big Bear; with sightseeing plus downhill and cross-country skiing just a few hours away.

If all of Southern California's attractions are still not enough, there are many day trips and overnight trips within the Southwest of the United States. Las Vegas is a four-hour drive by car or a fifty-minute flight - airline tickets are reasonably priced. San Francisco, Lake Tahoe, Mammoth Mountain (a popular ski resort) and Yosemite National Park are about 4 - 6 hours away by land and 1 hour by air. El Camino College and Southern California are waiting for you - we welcome you and hope to see you soon!
