The Best of Malibu

Malibu is another happy place of mine. The people are calmer. The traffic is lighter. The ice cream is creamier. It’s the best oasis within 40-minutes [give or take] of LA.

Even on a cool, cloudy day [like the afternoon we shot these photos], Malibu is still magical. That’s why I want you to put it on your travel lyst. If you live nearby, go for more day trips. Sit at the edge of the water and feel grateful. For those of you who live statesΒ [or countries] away, put Malibu on your vacation lyst. You can make a day out of it while visiting LA.

Here are my favorite spots [links below]…
