Long Weekends in California
Ben and I often comment after three day weekends what a difference that extra day makes. An excellent vacation spot for a long weekend is a trip to California. You are guaranteed to have beautiful weather year round. You can enjoy both the ocean and the mountains. What more could you possibly want?
Los Angeles makes a good starting point for a California weekend getaway since there many direct flights to LAX. Thanks to the time difference you can leave the East Coast on a Friday at 6:00 a.m. and arrive in LA by 8:00 a.m.!
After arriving in Los Angeles, hop in an Uber and go to Rancho Palos Verdes. It’s about 45 minutes depending on traffic from the airport. Terranae Resort is located in Rancho Palos Verdes and is incredible. We were introduced to the resort earlier this year and have already been twice.
Once you arrive at the resort, you will not want or need to leave! The resort is located on beachfront property and has four pools, a golf course, hiking trails, shops, a spa, and eight restaurants, cafes, and bars.
In addition to the guest rooms in the main building, there are bungalows, casitas, and villas. I’ve stayed in the villas twice which are luxurious - thanks to Emily's brother, Patrick! Terranae is ideal for both couples and large groups.
Other than the stunning property itself, what makes Terranae so special is the level of service provided to guests. From being greeted with a glass of champagne upon arrival to the quick transportation around the resort via their Lexus LX fleet to the staff working at the pools and restaurants, you will not be disappointed. The staff truly goes above and beyond to make sure anything you want is taken care of!
