A Quickie

Saturday, July 30, 2011

I love weekend road trips. It's such a great and low maintenance way to relax and get away. And living in LA affords me the luxury to take road trips to some very fabulous places, like Santa Barbara! This weekend, I will going to the seaside city two hours north of here for some wine tasting, fun in the sun, and some much needed R&R.

I'm looking forward to staying at the Hotel Oceana Santa Barbara, a charming Santa Barbara beachfront hotel providing endless ocean, mountain, and marina views. I'm definitely going to lounge by their outside courtyard, and then make my way over to the outdoor heated pools. The hotel also provides complementary two hour bike rentals, perfect for people like me who is always finding ways to squeeze fitness vacations (how else would I be able to justify the vacation food binges?). At night, I'm definitely going to walk over to the Marina and State Street, two of my favorite Santa Barbara hangouts and enjoy the light ocean breeze and the vibrant quaintness that one can only find in cities by the sea.

I hope you are having a fabulous summer weekend!
