Feel some salt and wind spray this weekend with a day trip toward our coastal bluff community and its protected habitats. You might recognize the lighthouse pictured below but never knew there was an adjacent interpretive center that offers visitors an in-depth, exploratory adventure that highlights the geology, landscape and history of the peninsula. Point Vicente Interpretive Center in Rancho Palos Verdes is a gem of a field trip where you can hike some bluff trails, wander around a native plant garden or peer out over some gorgeous seaside, cliff vistas. Maybe best known as the location where the American Cetacean Society of Los Angeles tracks the annual migration of the Pacific Gray Whales from December through May. Point Vicente Interpretive Center is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., closed on New Year’s Day, Christmas Eve & Day and Thanksgiving. more info
