Malibu named ‘great adventure town’


National Geographic Adventure magazine has named Malibu one of the “50 next great adventure towns in which to live and play.” Malibu is featured in the September issue, which has already hit newsstands.

From the magazine:

“Malibu may be one of California’s priciest zip codes, but the public now has access to every inch of coveted sand, even in front of the gazillion-dollar seaside mansions-no matter what the signs say. Home to Surf Rider [sic] Beach-the mainland’s answer to Maui-Malibu has a laid-back sophistication (think mom-and-pop general stores next to Nobu) that draws beach bums and megawatt stars alike. If you want to take a break from the waves, hit the newly refurbished pier, where plans are under way to build a surf museum. Or trek rugged Backbone Trail, which extends for more than 68 miles above the crashing Pacific through the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area.”
