We’re planning on two partial non-Disney days, and a few non-Disney evenings, We are staying in Cerritos (business). Are there botanical gardens near, what beach would be best to see? Any suggestions would be very appreciated 😊

Not near, but the Huntington Gardens in Pasadena are very nice and worth the drive. Pasadena is a great town (home of the Rose Parade, if you've ever seen that on television) for spending the day, with lots of restaurants and shopping. The Gamble House is there, too, if you are a fan of Craftsman architecture -- check to see when tours are offered. For beaches, look at Huntington, Laguna, maybe even La Jolla (if you are willing to drive a bit further).
This thread has some good information for you: DAY SIX Podcasts of Things to Do Around Disneyland.

Thank you so much! I will look into this. I’ll listen to the Day Six podcasts too. I completely forgot about them! Also, just wanted to say I’m a big fan, Tom. So glad you’re still on the weekly Disneyland podcast. 😊

You are a 15 minute drive from Rancho Los Alamitos, which I thorouhgly loved. It is a homestead and the last remnant of an enormous land grant that forms so much of Southern California history. Guides are super knowledgeable. Utterly fascinating, and there are plantings there to investigate if you are into botanicals.

This sounds like a perfect place to visit! Thank you so much 😊
