    You could sail to Pacific Palisades using a catamaran similar to these. However, it's probably faster and easier to drive. Parking the car could be a problem during summer.

    Fondest memory: A Califonria Highway Patrol (CHP) giving an escort to a film crew that was filming a motorcycle rider along Pacific Coast Highway (PCH).
