You work hard and when the weekend comes, it is important to find different ways to unwind and relax. One of the best ways to rid yourself of that weekday-stress is to go for a scenic drive and enjoy the many amazing views of Southern California. One of the most picturesque is a drive to Point Dume State Beach. With so many spectacular views, you may never want to leave.
Point Dume State Beach is located about an hour drive west of Los Angeles along the stunning Pacific Coast Highway. Even the drive to this beach is filled with its own scenic wonders, so take the time on the Pacific Coast Highway to enjoy this drive. Once you arrive at Point Dume, you’ll find a lot of beautiful areas to wander and enjoy.
Point Dume is a popular spot for swimming, fishing, scuba diving and surfing, so you can bring your gear and head out for some fun in the water. If you happen to be visiting during the months of December through April, you may even be able to spot a gray whale or two, as it is the perfect spot to see the majestic beauties during their annual migration period.
Make sure to take a drive to the end of Westward Beach Road to the Point Dume Natural Preserve and find the walking trail for some of the most amazing panoramic views in the area. You’ll find a natural spot that lets you see the entire Santa Monica Bay as well as the North Malibu Coast, the Santa Monica Mountains and even Catalina Island in the distance.
What is the perfect way to enjoy an amazing drive like this one? By taking your 2013 SLK250 Roadster from Mercedes-Benz of Encino. You’ll love being able to put the top down as you cruise along the Pacific Coast Highway, and you’ll arrive at Point Dume in total luxury and elegance, in the way that only a Mercedes-Benz can truly offer.
