Being centered in Seal Beach provides us with convenient access to one of most scenic and exciting drives around – PCH (the Pacific Coast Highway).  I take this drive often when I’m feeling the need to just get out and relax!  With a dozen or so Starbucks stores along PCH within 45 minutes, there’s even time to sip a latte and enjoy a good book for a few minutes.

From Seal Beach and headed north, I actually take 2nd Street so I can drive through Belmont Shore. 

Lined for several blocks with unique shops and restaurants, Belmont Shore is a good one day destination.  2nd Street is a couple of blocks from the ocean, but if you don’t mind that, then you’ll will enjoy nice weather, crowds, a variety of eating places, and two Starbucks stores.  My favorite shopping destination there is Banana Republic.  I normally just look (I save my money for the restaurants here).

What’s your favorite store?
