The Triangle Trolley Trip was a sightseeing trip offered by the Pacific Electric Railroad in the early 20th century in California. Billed as “The Way to See Southern California,” the 100 mile trip cost sightseers $1.00. The tour travelled southeast out of Los Angeles toward Santa Ana, and advertised such points of interest as “the walnut groves of the Whittier country,” “the oil fields of the Olinda District,” Huntington Beach, Seal Beach, and an aviation field.  The tour stopped for two hours for lunch in Long Beach, and included a free ride on the Hippodrome, a large ocean-side merry-go-round.
