Arguably the #1 stop for any PCH traveler heading up the Malibu Coast, this 60-year-old roadside seafood diner is a California classic and a true throwback to the kind of 1950’s Americana you probably idealize. Despite the hoards of travel-book tourists now waiting in line, you can still count on Neptune’s for absolutely prime people watching and a fantastic cup of clam chowder with ocean views before heading back home to reality.
