My husband and I are planning a last-minute four-day getaway (sans kids) and would like to spend this rare time together at a beach location somewhere in California.
Traveling from Denver, we are looking for a destination where we can relax and also have some fun - drinks and a nice dinner (no clubbing - we're in our mid-40s).
I've been researching San Diego, Santa Barbara and have looked at Laguna Beach a little. We're trying to find a mid- to high-end hotel either on the beach or with a full ocean view, within walking distance to restaurants and bars, with a nice pool and hopefully an onsite restaurant for room service.
I'm looking at the Surf and Sand Resort, but I just want to make sure I'm not missing something.....is there a town/city I'm not thinking of? A gem of a hotel or resort I haven't stumbled upon yet??
Thanks so much for any feedback!!
