Whale Tales: The 40th Annual Dana Point Festival of Whales arrives during this peak travel season -- expect 40 to 50 whales to pass by Dana Point each day "using the Dana Point Headland's 200-foot cliffs near the harbor as a landmark to check their migration path." Dana Point offers some of the best whale watching along the California Coast. Pick an excursion and be sure to visit the Headlands Conservation Park.
