200 trips in Southern California

This collection of play days is designed to give you hundreds of options, sprawling across seven counties. Nature, culture, show biz, kid stuff, tea rooms, biker bars, you name it. And I know an adventure can go south in a hurry if your first destination turns out to be a dud or the day is deadened by too much driving. So I've been to every one of these places myself, chosen favorites, and made micro-itineraries from the spots that seem to fit together best, geographically, historically, thematically, logically.
