Hi, in two weeks I'll be at DLR for my birthday. I am spending two nights at the Hyatt Garden Grove and I wanted to add a night at the beach. After doing some searching here, it looks like Huntington and Laguna were highly recommended. My questions are:
1. How long does it take to drive from DLR? We have our car, but I'm not sure how long it will take during the week.
2. Any suggestions for nice hotels close to the water? The water will be too cold to get in, but I would like to soak in the atmosphere, shop, dine, etc.
Any tips would be greatly appreciated, and I will buy you a churro if I see you at DLR. How can you beat that deal?
Thanks so much for your expert advice!!!
P.S. If I may say, coming from Phoenix, AZ you guys are SO lucky to have the ocean, beaches and all that cool stuff. I am super jealous. On the bright side, in 1,000,000 years L.A. will fall off, and we will have beach front property.
