Weekend Getaway Ideas in California

Whether you live in California or have always wanted to visit there, you will find that there are some great weekend getaway ideas in California. Girl getaways in the Golden State can be quite fun and memorable. The Napa Valley is a popular tourist destination and a perfect place for girls to get away from it all. Escape to Northern California’s wine country and tour some of the famous vineyards, or go hot air ballooning, relax at the beach, visit Hollywood, or get wrapped in mud at a luxurious spa. There are many California getaways to consider for your girls weekend!

There really are incredible world famous wineries to visit in the Napa Valley and you will soon realize they are like no other wineries in the nation. In fact, you will have to make advance reservations at many of the wineries, especially during peak season because they stay busy with tourists who want to see them firsthand. Some of them transport tourists on a limo bus as part of the price and you can also have breakfast or brunch at some of the wineries.

You’ll find many inns and resorts that cater to a Girls Weekend in Napa Valley. You and your friends can rent a condo or stay at a bed and breakfast or one of many hotels that the valley offers. When you visit the wine country of Napa, you’ll want to make sure you visit the downtown area, which is a mecca for rich culture and history. Browse through the shops, dine in fine restaurants, and even treat yourself to a day spa experience like no other.

Another fun girl vacation you may want to try is visiting Los Angeles with your friends. Tour movie sets, homes of the stars and visit the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Find the stars of your favorite stars and take silly pictures of each other. Visit Grauman’s Chinese Theater and then be sure and visit the viewing bridges at the Hollywood and Highland Complex. From there, you can take pictures of the famous Hollywood sign, which is something every tourist must do when visiting Hollywood.

Just this one area of Hollywood will keep you busy for quite a while. While you’re at the Hollywood and Highland Complex, you can also browse through the shops and there are restaurants, a bowling alley, and a nightclub there as well. Another fun thing to do if you’re going to be in the Los Angeles area is to see which television shows may be taping and check into getting tickets.

If you are not up to a busy weekend, you could also take your weekend getaway at the beach! With over 20 beaches to choose from, you can’t go wrong! You can enjoy good ol’ people watching at Venice Beach, walking or playing volleyball along Manhatten Beach and viewing the beautiful Santa Monica Bay, or the ever popular Redondo Beach, which claims to be perfect for weekend getaway. At any rate, you and your friends won’t run out of things to do in the Golden State.
