What if you had 200 play days in Southern California?

Then you'd have just enough time to test out the new edition of "SoCal CloseUps," an L.A. Times app and e-book by travel writer Christopher Reynolds. Introduced last summer with tips and pictures from Los Angeles and Orange counties, "SoCal CloseUps" has now grown to include the writer’s favorite spots from San Diego to Santa Barbara, from the beaches east to the deserts and mountains.

The iPad app, priced at $5.99, features more than 600 photographs and maps and 19 videos from Times staffers, along with hundreds of first-hand recommendations of hotels, restaurants, museums, neighborhoods, parks, beaches, tea rooms and biker bars. The text-only e-book is priced at $4.99.
