rockford files


My husband is a HUGE Rockford Files Fan!!

We are currently in California and I was wondering if there is anything in and around Malibu to do / see regarding The Rockford Files. Maybe filming locations, or anything saying 'The Rockford Files was filmed here!!'

He would love to go see anything along those lines and I would get lots of Brownie Points for having found them for him!

Thanks in advance for any help

Go have lunch at the Paradise Cove Beach Cafe (formerly called the Sandcastle). Things have changed a bit since the Rockford Files days. Needless to say - Jim Rockford's old trailer is no longer parked in a corner of the parking lot. But your husband will recognize the restaurant building, beach area, and pier. And inside the restaurant, the walls are covered with photos of the history of Paradise Cove and Malibu.
