I love exploring the coast in California, as a child my parents always took me on road trips for the weekend and we would go up and down the state. One of our favorite places to visit was Monterey. I hadn’t been there for awhile and wanted to go take a little trip up there. The city is so cute and charming. We stayed at the Portola Hotel and Spa that is located in downtown Monterey, just walking distance to fisherman’s wharf. It’s in a really great location. It’s steps away from great restaurants and bars. Also, if you wanted to explore the cities in the central coast like Carmel and Pacific Grove it’s centrally located that you can easily explore. The hotel has a newly remodeled lobby that is gorgeous. It is filled with trees that make it feel really fresh and airy but also very inviting to sit…

Are you looking for the perfect weekend getaway? I always love a good staycation just to recharge and getaway for a little.

I love a good staycation! I recently spent three days in Conejo Valley. If you aren’t familiar with the Conejo Valley it’s Malibu, Thousand Oaks, Agoura Hills and Newbury Park. It’s a short drive from LA and Orange County and if you love hiking and exploring new areas it’s a must visit. You can escape to a really pretty area without having to go to far. I do love lounging around when I go on vacation but I really love exploring cities and seeing what they have to offer. We stayed at the Sheraton in Aguora Hills and the bed was so comfy that I probably could’ve slept the entire day. The location of the hotel is really convienant to everything and makes it the perfect place to stay. I was really excited to explore Conejo Valley because the only city I was really familiar with was Malibu. There are…
