Only for a week tho, lol In about two weeks ill be heading out to visit my sister in Torrance,CA. She lives like 5 mins away from the beach, and i cant wait to finally take some sunset photos instead of sunrise, While i'm there we will be renting a car for the week to get around and might decide to take a trip up the coast, how far tho is still yet to be determined. i figured id post here to see what other things would be fun to do and any must see photo spot to visit?

In Playa Del Ray there is beach right at the end of the LAX Airport runway, its been awhile since I have been there, but if I remember correctly you can get some really good low flying airplane shots. (its a beach and park so your good to take pictures). You can do a maps.google.com to see what I am talking about :)

Also, the PCH is amazing just for the drive, but some great places to shoot along the way.

I definitely recommmend driving Highway 1 north, preferably through Big Sur to Monterey, but at least up to Santa Barbara. The former would require an overnight stay, but I think you can make SB a day trip from LA if you start early.

Second that - along with Ojai :-) Also, when in Venice Beach - check out the street character/mayor 'Too Much Steak and Chocolate Cake'.

Since you'll be in Torrance you should check out the Glass Church in Palos Verdes. You could probably get some interesting sunset shots from inside there.
