This landmark was built in 1906 for Frederick Rindge's private railroad and is a must-visit attraction for those who wish to learn the history behind it. It is located in the heart of California's surf culture, and surfers from around the world come to Surfrider Beach, which is adjacent to Malibu Pier. There is also a surfing museum, gift shop and diner on site. Whale watching and harbor tours coupled with beach activities are a wonderful way to spend time at the pier.
Though this claim is largely disputed by Manhattan Beach and others, Surfrider is reputed to be the birthplace of California surfing. Whether or not that is true, the beach has gained its reputation through other means, namely having consistently good summer waves and being the filming location for Frankie Avalon/Annette Funicello movies. More importantly, this beach is the namesake for the Surfrider Foundation, a grassroots organization whose goal is to protect coastlines all over the world. Today, surfers continue to frequent this area's well-formed waves, despite warnings of eroding conditions.
Disney's magic kingdom, the Disneyland Park in Anaheim is the original theme park; a labor of love designed by Walt Disney himself, the only one of the franchise to have been built directly under his auspicious care. Since its grand opening in 1955, this theme park has come to be renown as the place where dreams come true; where ogres, dragons and wizards roam, dazzling visions of the future are realized, and all are invited to experience a realm born of an imagination that knows no bounds. Expanded over the years, this whimsical wonderland now includes eight playfully themed lands like Critter Country and Mickey's Toontown. Here, fairytale princesses and Mickey Mouse greet visitors of every age, welcoming them into a world where magical lands are brought to life and there are thrilling experiences galore.
