    Mission Point is a popular 2 mile uphill trek that's perfect for a bit of exercise. Its not particularly scenic, but the steady incline is definitely a good workout, especially the last couple hundred feet which is a pretty steep slog to the top. On a clear day, you can see Mount Baldy in the distance and a good bit of the valley below you.

    My family and I enjoyed a superb holiday Champagne brunch at the
    Odyssey Restaurant with a hilltop view of the San Fernando Valley.
    There are few choices for quality dining on Thanksgiving Day and
    Christmas Day. We have chosen this restaurant occasionally over many
    years including both holidays in 2009. The atmosphere, buffet
    selections, and service have been consistently excellent.

    I enjoy taking a stroll around the restaurant to take in the views
    (some caution is necessary on the east side boardwalk, especially if
    you are wearing narrow heals). The entry features a koi pond with
    fountains. The hostesses were pleasant and the wait staff were
    courteous and helpful. Being a self-service buffet, including juices,
    offset the occasional delay in getting attention for ordering coffee
    and getting the bill. We were very comfortable taking all the time we
    wanted.

    This restaurant regularly hosts banquets and receptions in several large
    rooms where they seat larger parties for the holiday brunch (without the
    Valley view). Here, there are big round tables
    which I found worked well for our family gathering. These rooms
    have a second buffet with most items and, still, it is not far for the
    omelets and carving station.

    Favorite Dish: I like to take in the buffet in many small courses. First, some
    lighter fare at the salad bar and a made-while-I-waited omelet. Then,
    I visited the carving station for turkey and all the fixin's. There's
    the seafood bar with whole steamed salmon,
    crab legs, shrimp, and freshly made sushi. They have a long table
    stocked with entrees of lamb shanks, beef, sausage, eggs, mashed
    potatoes, Eggs Benedict, and more. There was an assortment of bread. I
    like the selection of fresh fruit. And, oh, the dessert bar! This year, they
    had a chocolate fountain to dip your strawberries, along with a wide
    assortment of pies and cakes with various toppings available.

    Considering the free-flowing Champagne, the price around $35 per
    person seems reasonable.
