For example, Interstate 5 is referred to as "the 5" and State Route 91 is referred to as "the 91". Museo Regional de Historia, Mulege: It's not so much this museum that fascinates me; it's more about the fact that it was once a state penitentiary that allowed its inmates to leave during the day-on the condition they return at dusk! A jolt that conjures up recollections of rumors and horror stories of trips gone bad. The area's tremendous variety attracts every kind of traveler with an unequaled mix of sophisticated resorts, rustic inns, exquisite beaches, desert landscapes, and exhilarating adventures. Whether swimming or people watching, beaches are a great destination in SoCal.
