So, because I don't like what LA has become and am vocal about it, I'm not allowed to like the one or two positive things LA has to offer?

THAT doesn't make sense.

On a return trip to LA from San Diego during the 4th of July weekend, I decided to veer of the I-5 and take Hwy 1 along the coast beginning from San Clemente to Newport Beach. This is a very nice and visually stimulating scenic drive passing through some of the premiere beach communities in Orange County and in Socal in general like Dana Point, Capistrano, Laguna Beach, Corona Del Mar, Monarch Beach, Newport Coast, etc. Has a very different vibe and feel than LA County beach communities which adds to the great diversity of scenery and communities there are along our coastline.

That is a great drive. On a smaller scale, you can take the Ortega Highway (CA-74) across the hills from San Juan Capistrano to Lake Elisnore, or take the reverse route and stop off in San Juan Capistrano or Laguna for lunch/dinner. A good portion of the route goes through the Cleveland National Forest, so it's a mix of natural beauty and twisty roads.
