Wij hebben zelf een dagje Los Angeles bekeken, en onze camper ergens downtown gezet en daarna zijn we naar de camping: Malibu Beach RV park gereden, dit zit buiten LA, aan het strand, echt een mooie en relaxte camping. Dichtbij het strand, je ziet de zee vanuit je camper en alle benodigdheden voor je camper zijn aanwezig. Het is wel een iets duurder camping maar je zit dan wel in een prachtige omgeving.
