The Perfect One Day Trip To Malibu, California
When you hear “Malibu” you might picture manicured palm trees and a ritzy, upscale area, like Beverly Hills.
But Malibu is a quiet area with a small-town vibe. Mom and Pop shops line the Pacific Coast Highway (PCH) and many beaches are free!
Let's look at some of the BEST things to do in Malibu and how to plan the perfect day!
Start your day with a sunrise hike on Zuma Ridge Trail.
