We love adventures and local getaways as much as anyone else. But, we always try to find special places that marvel us with architectural design and unique experience.
Here are our top 5 picks for local getaways:
1) Big Bear, California
Check out this bohemian eclectic A-Frame cabin close to the ski slopes and the village. Newly renovated and immaculately designed with Courtney Poulos’ vision.
2) Yosemite, California
Even if you don’t hike, this national park is worth the visit. There are several ways to experience it.
For the most adventurous, do not miss out on this glamping Oregon Trail style experience. These covered wagons decked out with king size accommodations featuring air conditioning, heat, and even a refrigerator and microwave look like an incredible way to live out your wild west fantasies.
If you want to go for the old-fashioned comfort, stay at Chateau du Sureau. This majestic hotel is reminiscent of the finest European châteaux. Its elegant interior and five star dining experience make it one of our favorite places!
3) Napa Valley, California
Who doesn’t like wine tasting? But even if you don’t, you can’t miss the wine train special experience. A true ode to the elegant days of train travel. Vintage first-class Pullman Standard Company railcars restored and reimagined for modern comfort all while enjoying a multi course decadent cuisine.
4) Burbank, California
Take a first class flight to nowhere on this Pan Am Experience.
The company is now offering monthly dinner parties aboard an exact replica of a Boeing 747, decked out just like Pan Am flights were laid out in the 1970’s. Complete with cocktails, dinner, and an in-flight movie, visitors are treated to the First Class experience. Flight attendants dressed in 1970’s Pan Am uniforms are on hand to greet guests, and will be serving dinner on authentic Pan Am china, linens, and glassware. After dinner, guests will be able to view other airline memorabilia and film production sets.
5) La Jolla, California
When you are looking for something intimate and charming. La Valencia Hotel and Spa has been an unforgettable destination since 1926 and a getaway for Hollywood elite in the Golden Era. Perched above the La Jolla Cove cliffs along the sparkling Pacific Ocean, La Valencia offers something for everyone.
Wherever you go and whatever you do, enjoy each moment. Happy 2019!
