Oh?

As a third-generation Angeleano, I'd be curious as to what you look for in a city to make it rate highly for a visitor?

Also, traveling with a toddler, I'd be concerned how he/she does with extended driving time in a car seat. Some are fine, while others *really* get cranky or carsick when the trip gets longer than an hour or so w/o a break. I'd have a plan for stops if this is apt to be a problem.

If the above likely to be an issue, I'd also recomend giving Highway 1 south of Monterey a pass... While it's a lovely drive w/ amazing views, it's also a twisty road w/ almost nowhere to stop from Big Sur to San Simeon... Better to take I-101 South.
