California, The Eureka State, offers such variety for travelers – cities, mountains, beaches, and lakes. The warm weather is often appealing to those who like to relax on vacation and a draw for the active holiday maker.
Yosemite, Nature is Calling
Camping under the stars at California’s Yosemite is what dreams are made of. When sleeping outdoors is not your bag, Yosemite View Lodge is the luxurious alternative. Rooms overlook the Merced River, so you wake up to the sound of the gushing river water. Rooms have a kitchenette, but who needs them when there are fine dining opportunities available? The Riverside Restaurant and Lounge offers all of the American favorites. There are also onsite indoor and outdoor swimming pools, as well as a spa.
Live like a celebrity at Two Bunch Palms Spa Resort. For more than 600 years, the grounds of this resort have bubbled away producing mineral lithium rich hot springs, perfect for a healing weekend. This hotel has not gone unnoticed, as the 2015 Wellness Travel Awards presented the resort with the Best Hotel Springs in America award. The process of ‘taking of the waters’ takes place at The Grotto where the water is first cooled and then used to fill two carved pool areas. The resort also offers a meditation and yoga schedule. Essence, the team behind the culinary experience, have attempted to create a healthier menu without cutting out on taste! They boast of ‘farm to table’ meals.
Top Class in California
There are actually too many awards associated with L’Auberger Del Mar – Destination Hotels and Resorts to name but most notably the resort was awarded the GreenLeader tag from TripAdvisor. The Southern Californian hotel sits among 5.2 acres of landscaped grounds. Take the private path, which many of Hollywood’s celebrities have walked, to one of the best beaches in California, straight from the resort. Del Mar is popular for being close to San Diego airport as well as its racetracks and fairgrounds. The sunny and sophisticated rooms offer all the usual hotel amenities in addition to the unique village, garden, or coastal views.
The Cheaper Side to California
Naturally, the above resorts are not open to everyone’s budget, Town Motel in California accommodates those on a cheaper travel plan. For what it lacks in luxury it makes up with in style – this retro hotel is aesthetically pleasing. The rooms are bright and equipped. Pets can stay too!
Business and Pleasure
Travelers who like to mix business with pleasure, will find the speedy WiFi of Cupertino Inn useful. For post work celebrations, the rooms feature mini-bars and comfortable beds. Hotel amenities include a full body workout room with SPRI exercise balls and Xertube resistance balls to sweat off stress from the working day.
Whether you are out to party, work, stretch or play, California has lots on offer.
