Three days around LA - Newport Beach

Jump to last reply

My daughter wants to tour Cal Long Beach University and we found bargain tickets for next weekend. We travel late Thrusday to LAX and need to plan our time but it's coming very slowly.

PLEASE help us

Thrusday: We made reservations at a Newport Beach hotel. We arrive at LAX at 10 pm, will rent a car and drive to Newport.

Friday: We have a campus tour in Long Beach at 10: 30 am. We are trying to figure out if we can/should tour another school in the afternoon. Last year we visited UCLA and USC. DD is into filmaking

Saturday: DH wants to drive to San Diego but has no "real" plans. We visited the SD Zoo years ago.....maybe we should take our 17 year old DD? Then stay in San Diego?

Would it be better to stay around Newport? Can someone suggest things to do, places to eat? We are foodies and have traveled extensively in the US and abroad. During spring break we did Highway 1 (up and down) and loved it.....California is absolutely wonderful and we enjoyed the freshnes of the produce and fish!

Please help us plan something fun and tasty
