Staying at Point Mugu near Oxnard Ca for two weeks and would like to go to San Pedro for the day. What would be the best time and route? Thanks Ed

Based on the least traffic going and coming...Best day would be Sunday or 2nd best Saturday. You need to head back to Pt Mugu before 1PM on Sunday to beat traffic. Saturday head back by 2PM

During the week Tues, Wed or Thurs. leave before 6AM or after 10AM return from San Pedro by 2PM at the latest.

HWY 101 to I-405 to HWY 110 which ends at Gaffey street. Gaffey will get you into the heart of San Pedro. If you want to go to the harbor use Vincent Thomas Bridge/ Harbor Blvd. offramp and take Harbor Blvd to head to the harbor (Battleship Iowa signs)

The Iowa is worth seeing if you haven’t visited a BB. Please pay your respects at turret number two if you go.

This the same Point Mugu that is 60 miles from San Pedro?

There are not “multiple” Mugus in California.

What if I departed Mugu at 10AM and stayed at San Pedro until about 8PM. What would traffic be like at that time?

Better than earlier in the morning and 6-7 p.m. Look, driving anywhere in L.A., my hometown, is...slow. Go, you’ll enjoy that part of our city. Just don’t expect to miss the traffic.

For a day trip, go down the coast, leave at 6am. Stay till 8pm, take the 405 to the 101 home. If you go on a weekend you can leave at 7. I made that commute for 6 years and these days it’s a crapshoot 24/7...

Someone mentioned that it is 60 miles from one point to the other. It sounds like nothing. At the wrong time of day, though, that trip can take three hours! So that is why the OP is asking.

If you have ever seen the "Californians" skits on Saturday Night Live (available on YouTube), the skits are dead accurate -- in southern Calif, we are very serious about strategies to avoid sitting in traffic.

And now, back on topic. The biggest problem the OP will face is Pacific Coast Highway. It can slow down a lot without warning at any time, if there is a fender bender anywhere along the way. No way to avoid the PCH, unless you take Kanan Dume over the hill back to the 101. Which probably will not save any time.


Good luck!
