National Geographic : 1936 May
Some people don't like -( this kind of Vacation.. THE tangy air of the snow-capped heights ... the scent of sage and pine and saddle leather... the tug of a hungry trout... these, to some, are all a vacation need include. Others would trade them all for the thrill of a surfboard glide, the lift of a wave and snap of a bellying sail, the tingling shock of a plunge in the foaming surf, or lazy relaxa tion on the sand. Curiously, Nature has blessed Southern California with both mountains (including Mt. Whitney, the nation's highest) and an ocean, with pleasure islands near the shore. And if neither mountains nor ocean fills your vacation requirements, Los Angeles County and its neighbors offer you still other things this summer: Sports: golf, tennis, polo, riding, hunting, auto races--your favorite, whatever it may be. A summer average tem perature of only 69.4- -clear, rainless days; nights cool enough for blankets. Fascinating industries - citrus, oil, movie-making, ship ping. Daytime and evening thrills in celebri ty-filled Hollywood. The foreign flavor of palms and orange groves, ancient Spanish Missions and nearby Old Mexico. World known resort cities like Los Angeles, Pasa dena, Long Beach, Glendale, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, Pomona and others. All these and other things are only over night, even from New York, by plane; 3 days by train, 5 to 7 by auto, 2 weeks by ship via Panama. Costs in this year 'round vacation land are far less than the "peak prices" nec essary in many short-season resorts.
