    > go tide-pooling
    > watch the grunions run
    > bedazzeld by the deserts

    > see loads of monarchs hanging from trees
    > go climb some cool rocks

Some enjoyable indoors:

    > go dancing at the Detroit Bar in Costa Mesa
    > climb or do some other sport at UCI's Recreational Center ARC
    > tune in on one of the cool CA radio stations like KCRW, KPCC, or KPFK

Live music:

    > check out the new Walt Disney Concert Hall in LA
