Bucket List Worthy Getaways Close to Los Angeles
Last week I took a little road trip up to Santa Barbara to visit my bestie Jenn at her family’s beach house that literally sits right on the sand. Not only was she my partner in business, but also my partner in crime, and having her move all the way to Dallas has been one of the bigger heartbreaks of my life.
We had a magical day full of laughs over lunch at C’est Cheese, where we split a cheese board and Muffuletta, because she and I have exactly the same taste. She even humored me by taking a walking tour of Belmond El Encanto, a hotel that I have wanted to visit for so long. If anything, this day reminded me the importance of quality time with girlfriends, AND that there are so many hidden gems within driving distance from LA. Scroll down to see what’s topping my list of bucket list worthy weekend getaways.
