Don't tell San Francisco, but Coronado Ferry Landing in San Diego may have the most jaw-dropping city views in the state, including a snazzy skyline, Navy craft, the Coronado Bay Bridge and the traffic (sailboats to freighters) in the channel.
Well that was disappointing, a waste of time. California extends from Mexico to the Oregon border. You gave us a smattering of piers (mostly in San Diego County) and stopped in San Francisco, skipped Santa Monica and Malibu. This seems very scattershot to me, a poorly thought out anc poorly executed waste of time that did no justice to its subject. Some of the pictures were lovely, but that's it. They did not tell a compelling story. An interesting topic, though.
You can't say "California pier" without including Huntington Beach, Santa Monica (Big Momma), Malibu, Santa Cruz or San Simeon (probably the prettiest fishing pier in America). I'll take you where the LAT didn't in the pictures below:
