6 Beautiful SoCal Staycations for the Perfect Weekend Getaway
1. Aztec Falls (San Bernardino County)
Looking for picturesque waterfalls, and winding paths of weeping willows? You don’t have to look far! About 35 mins southeast of downtown Aztec Falls offers beautiful watering holes that are sure to give you that getaway feeling, right in your backyard.
2. De Portola Wine Trail (Temecula Valley)
Sonoma Valley is always a great road trip, but rolling hills of divine vineyards are closer than you think. De Portola Wines is an impressive alternative to the long drive up the coast.
3. La Jolla Cove (San Diego County)
We are lucky to have direct access to one of the best coastlines in the world, sometimes we can take them for granted. La Jolla Cove will be sure to impress you with its rocky coast and beautiful avionic diversity.
4. Kimberly Crest House and Gardens (1325 Prospect Drive in Redlands)
When you think castles, I'm sure the last place you’d imagine is a location 50 miles from LAX; right? Well you can have your very own fairy-tale experience in Redlands at The Kimberly Crest House and Gardens. Make sure to time your visit on a day when they offer a public tour so you can see this beauty up close and in person. Tours run Thursday-Sunday from 1pm to 4pm.
5. Santa Barbara Botanic Garden
Endless fields of wildflowers, koi ponds, and babbling brooks. This enchanting garden is perfect for giving you a relaxing break from L.A’s hustle and bustle.
Some things change, most things stay the same. You can’t have a list of SoCal staycation spots without including the trusted and true Catalina Island. The crystal clear waters and spectacular seafood makes it hard to believe it’s just a 30 min boat ride from the coast.
