Overview

The tourists think big. Arriving in Southern California, they expect to conquer Disneyland and Hollywood, perhaps on the same day, in between the surfing and snowboarding.
The locals think small. Tracing tight little loops between home and work, they dodge freeways and alien neighborhoods. So whether you’re a tourist or a local in Southern California, you’re probably leaving some fun on the table.

If you’re from far away, it could last you decades. If you’re local, think of this as three years and 11 months of weekends. By the time you’re done, I plan on being ready with more.
