Can we all just agree that Southern California has some of the most spectacular locations in the world? So really there is no excuse not to get out there and romantic with your main whilst getting your CALI / LIVING on! But hey, I get it… sometimes we just draw a blank on how to get the romance going. I've rounded up some romantic get away tips that are so close you have zero excuse not to treat your lover, yourself or your homegirls to a California adventure!
I mean HELLO?! who doesn't love a treehouse? And us Californians are in luck because we have access to some pretty cool ones that we can rent for a quick get-away. Check out Hidden California's treehouse get-away listings.
The Hotel Bel-Air might be a bit out of my price range for a weekend. But you can always grab a drink, dinner or book a day by the pool to enjoy their fairytale like grounds its meandering paths and ponds with swans floating peacefully.
Quite possibly the sexiest get-away in Southern California is Palm Springs. I love it's heat, it's inspiring architecture and design. One of the favorites is The Russell House. Built in 1959, this hill-side house features panoramic views from its massive pool and jacuzzi… but it only has one bedroom so you gotta share a bed!
If you want to get lost with your honey take a trip up the the San Bernardino Mountains where you can hike, climb, ski, boat and snuggle by the fire all you want. One of the most romantic hikes in the world is located here - Heart Rock Falls. You know I love an Aframe and Lake Arrowhead and Big Bear have some awesome ones. So for lodging I recommend jumping on Airbnb and finding something rad for your weekend. But another great option is this fun little lodge in Big Bear called Castle Wood Cottages.
Ok what? So I can get my cheese on too! I grew up on the Westside of LA so I'm a huge Venice fan. And what could be more romantic than a gondola ride though the Venice Canals at sunset?
