    The closet beach would be Santa Monica and you can find a guide to the transportation in the area here (http://www.metro.net) As for things to do, SoCal is pretty spread out, but next door to Universal Studios is CityWalk, which has fun shops and dining in an outdoor mall. You can also take the bus into Hollywood and check out the theaters, Walk of Fame, tours and the outdoor entertainment along Hollywood Boulevard.

    Hmm...Santa Monica is about 400 miles from SFO, so you have a ways to go. The most convenient way would probably be to drive the six hours between locations, if you have access to a car. If you do drive, you may want to leave as early as 2:00 a.m. for an 11:25 flight, which would get you to SFO around 8:00 a.m. if you don't hit too much traffic. It also depends on how early you need to get to SFO to catch your flight. Other options for travel from Santa Monica to SFO: An hour-long flight will take you from LAX to SFO, but will probably cost you a couple hundred dollars; Amtrak would take around ten hours and cost about $54; and a bus will take 8-12 hours and cost around $39 to $88. Keep in mind that you should arrive at SFO within the recommended time before your flight departs(you can call your airline to find out what they recommend). Good luck!

    Short of finding a spray park or pool in Bakersfield itself, think your best bet will be Santa Barbara. It'll be a bit of a long drive, though; one alternative might be Lake Isabella recreation area, about 35 miles northeast of Bakersfield and a good spot for boating, fishing, and lake swimming.
