I love doing weekend trips especially road trips and I am always looking for new places to go.  Recently we went to Lake Arrowhead which is a short drive from LA, it took us around an hour and half to get to Lake Arrowhead Resort and Spa. Which is located in the heart of Lake Arrowhead Village.  The hotel is a short walk to all the restaurants and shops. This cute boutique hotel is surrounded by beautiful mountains and the hotel sits on a private lake, you’ll get a camp style feeling but with luxury amenities.

Want to escape to the most charming hotel that is tucked away in the rolling hillsides of Avignon? La Divine Comédie is a beautiful grand manor house that has been transformed into an all suite luxury hotel. There are only five suites in this hotel, it is a dream like gem.  It boasts the largest private garden in Avignon. This mini oasis is also just steps away from the city center.

The show is amazing and this was the first time I had seen it in over 20 years.  It has gotten even better since I was a child. If you are unfamiliar with Pageant of the Masters, it is a live performance of paintings, tableaux vivants (living pictures).  Which means the entire performance are people who are painted into classic paintings.  It is set in an outdoor amphitheater, with an orchestra, live narration and is incredible to watch.  Every year the theme changes and this is was Under the Sun, which is a tribute to the 85th anniversary to the Pageant and 100th year anniversary to the Laguna Beach Museum.     We attended the Celebrity Benefit that…
