THE GETTY VILLA - MALIBU

We’ll head north, in our spacious and luxurious Sprinter Van, on our way to the Getty Villa in Malibu. Malibu is an affluent, beachfront city consisting of a 21-mile strip of prime Pacific coastline. It is famous for its warm, sandy beaches, and for being the home of many Hollywood Movie Stars and others associated with the entertainment industry. Most Malibu residents live within a few hundred yards of Pacific Coast Highway which traverses the city, with some residents living up to a mile away from the beach up narrow canyons. The Getty Villa is the original site of the J. Paul Getty Museum.  It is an educational center and museum dedicated to the study of the arts and cultures of ancient Greece, Rome, and Etruria, with the antiquities arranged by themes including Gods and Goddesses, Dionysos and the Theater, and Stories of the Trojan War.  The architecture and gardens are Roman-inspired in a setting overlooking the beautiful Pacific Ocean.  A good choice for lunch is Gladstone’s Fish Restaurant across the street on the sand, overlooking the beautiful Pacific Ocean. 


VENICE BEACH - SANTA MONICA PIER

We'll continue along the coastline to Venice Beach and Muscle Beach, known for its canals, beaches and circus-like Ocean Front Boardwalk, a two-and-a-half mile pedestrian-only promenade that features Street Performers, Fortune-Tellers, Artists and Vendors.

Continuing south, we’ll find the beautiful little beach town of Santa Monica where you can walk onto the Santa Monica Pier with its huge ferris wheel and merry-go-round. The fabulous Third Street Promenade makes an excellent destination for shopping and dining.
