Are you looking for a delicious, easy and fun Southern California beach vacation? Then, this Oxnard itinerary is for you!
Temecula Wine Country is a beautiful destination for a day trip, weekend getaway or extended vacation. The fertile valley is north of San Diego, south of Los Angeles and east of Orange County, so it’s an easy drive for Southern California residents.
We always love a hotel with an ocean view and Hofsas House has them! The family owned boutique hotel is located in the quaint Northern California beach town of Carmel by The Sea. It’s a great place to stop for a single night or an extended vacation.
The Hyatt Regency Monterey has a new executive chef and he has taken over at the resort’s TusCA restaurant. We had the pleasure of getting a sneak peak at the new menu, when we attended the Hyatt chef’s dinner preview.
Ruby Princess Specialty Dining – Cruise ship food is legendary! When you go on a cruise, you just know that you are going to eat well with the good meals that are included for all cruisers. I’ve often wondered, if it really makes sense to upgrade a meal for a premium dining experience.
Santa Maria wine tasting is a fun and educational activity for a getaway vacation. The Central California coast has a Mediterranean climate that is ideal for agriculture that includes grapes for wine. This same climate also makes it a lovely spot for a vacation.
The Carmel Valley area of the Central California Coast produces world class wine. This charming European style village is home to many wine tasting rooms that are all within walking distance. You can check into your hotel and head out on foot for a walking tour of the tasting rooms. All of this can be done at your own pace.
We always enjoy stopping by farmer’s markets and farm stands, when we’re traveling. Monterey County is a frequent travel destination for us, so we’ve been to the Carmel farmers market several times.
Do your dogs travel with you on day trips and longer adventures? If so, your four legged family member is going to need the proper gear to suit his or her active lifestyle.
San Diego is always a favorite destination for us, even though it’s a short drive from home. A stay at the luxurious Coronado Island Marriott is a real treat that leaves us feeling as if we have traveled far, far away.
Mexico is a favorite vacation destination. While I am capable of roughing it, a luxury all inclusive Mexican resort is generally my first choice. I had a great experience at Villa del Palmar Loreto.
