Knotts Berry farm is fun, it's an theme park or amusement park with rides, if I only had time to do one I personally like Disneyland better. If you have the time do both. They're not far from one another.

Check out Venice Beach. It's a great place to people watch 9and also not far from Santa Monica beach).

Also walk around Hollywood, the Sunset Strip, the Chinese Theatre & the Walk of Fame (with the hand and foot prints of the stars).

"The Background
Always anxious to pat itself on the back, the city of Hollywood conceived its Walk of Fame in 1960. Since then, more than 2,000 sidewalk stars have been awarded to some of the biggest (and not-so-big) names in the business. Clark Gable and Cary Grant are neighbors at 1608 and 1610 Vine Street. Audrey Hepburn is a little further down the way at 1652 Vine. And the very first star awarded, to Joanne Woodward, is at 6801 Hollywood Boulevard.

The Experience
On a street filled with landmarks, the sidewalk itself actually becomes something of a thrill--notable names jump out one after the other, mixed in with the names of obscure individuals whose faded celebrity is a reminder that fame is indeed fleeting. But don't forget to look up: otherwise, you'll walk right past Mann's Chinese Theatre, the Capitol Records building and, of course, Frederick's of Hollywood."
