Rent a car and visit disneyland ,magic mountain ,queen elisabeth,sea world in san diego ,gran canyon etc. places worth to visit
Expect some hot weather and queues in abundance !

If you were to bring one kite I'd suggest 12m. Maybe 10m on a surfboard. Typical wind speeds for mid July mid teens to upper teens.
