The Getty Center and Getty Villa

Want a bit of enjoyable education over the summer? The Getty Center, located in Los Angeles, and the Getty Villa, located in Pacific Palisades, both have extraordinary artwork and natural beauty, in addition to breathtaking sights of Los Angeles and Malibu to enrich your summer experience.

The Promenade at Westlake

There are many dining and shopping opportunities at the local Promenade at Westlake. Many new shops and restaurants have been filling the center and are worth a try. Seabutter serves high-quality sushi and the upcoming restaurant Sweetfin is a fantastic place to eat some plant and poke-based bowls that are sustainable and gluten free.

Go to the Beach

Take a short drive down Malibu Canyon or Kanan Road to go to the beach and get a chance to relax. Wind down from the busy school year by laying out in the sun and swimming in the ocean. Zuma beach is a beautiful spot to spend your summer days, however, the beach may be crowded in the summer, so it is best to arrive early in the day.

Cafe Sapientia

Just across the street from Starbucks, Cafe Sapientia is an excellent family-owned coffee shop where you can cool down with snacks and a drink. Some of their popular items include a variety of flavors of snow creme bowls and their delicious iced beverages.
