Approximately one or two years ago, I went to a work conference in Manhattan Beach, California. It was a great trip, and the area was definitely beautiful even though I hardly left the conference hotel. Yes, I went all the way to a very beautiful city and didn't really get to enjoy it! It is something that I still regret to this day, however, it's not hard for me to go back again (as stated below).

We plan on going back eventually, and venturing past the hotel that we are staying at of course.
