Default Choose my vacation (Southern Cal?) +Hot Chick

I have a bunch of vacation time that I'll lose if I don't use it by the end of the year. Since I'm running out of time to make real plans, and I'm single, I'm thinking about a solo trip of some sort.

I'm thinking of an LA/San Diego type trip because:

1. I currently live in NJ, and have never been to the west coast
2. Southern California should be warm in early December
3. I can't think of any place better

So my question for you if you're familiar with the area: Can I keep myself reasonably entertained for a week? If yes, what should I do? What things are worth seeing? Should I drive along the coast, check out a certain city, anything else I can't think of?

I'm not going to be more specific with things I like to do, or research I've done (none), because all suggestions are welcome, and I haven't really thought this through.

Thanks, OOT.

Go USC!

But just as a notice, Southern California isn't so much warm in winter as not cold. Also, the rainy season in SoCal is mostly in the "winter," so it is possible you can come for a week and only see rain. Not entirely likely, but over the summer it may rain once, and in the month of december it will probably rain 4-5 times.

Some options:

-If you come at the first of the year, there's the Rose Bowl and all the accompanying hoopla.
-San Diego Zoo/Seaworld.
-Mann's Chinese Theater/Hollywood in general.
-Several casinos in the area, including Bicycle Club and Commerce.
-Many restaurants/nightclubs that are good for seeing stars, if that's your thing.
-Lots of beaches (although "warm" in January will be high 50s/low 60s, and you do run the risk of rain).
-Lakers or Clippers games; Clippers are cheaper and less packed, while the Lakers have the Hollywood crowd. Or UCLA/USC basketball, if you prefer college hoops.

That's all I can think of off the top of my head.

You're forgetting that they're coached by Tim Floyd now.

Thanks so far. I think a visit or two to both the beach and a couple of the card rooms would be a given. I didn't realize it would be the rainy time of year.

If I were to rent a car, are there scenic drives to be made (along the coast?) in SoCal?

More suggestions welcome of course.
