Check out this Palm Springs style bank in Manhattan Beach on Pacific Coast Highway, which is a former Coast Federal and now a Washington Mutual. The reflecting pools have been replaced with river washed stone but it still looks great! See this building and more from the Southern California area at Roadside Peek's Mid-Century Modern Architecture Southern California.

The Donut Hole in Industry. Where else can you not only drive-up and grab a bag of donuts, but drive through a donut to get there? Well worth a stop, even if you don't like donuts. Besides, you can always grab a cup of coffee! See this example of programmatic architecture and more at Roadside Peek's Roadside Vernacular Southern California.

With a name like the Half Moon Inn, this place has great potential. The look of the entrance is superb and there are a lot of Tikis inside. See more of the roadside tiki places at Roadside Peek's Roadside Tiki Southern California.
