What better way to escape the heat and chaos that comes with everyday life then a quick trip away from home? Whether around the corner or over the mountains, these nearby hideaways are still close enough to home, yet far enough away.
Orange County, once a hush-hush Southern California gem, has quickly become this coastal state’s breath of fresh air with its clean and upscale charm at the foot of stunning white-sand beaches. Yes, Los Angeles may have the fame and San Diego may have the action, but Orange County is the new and upgraded Southern California.
There are plenty of reasons to head to San Diego for a midsummer getaway, but escaping the desert heat is tops. Take in cool breezes, fresh ocean views and a world of activity at your fingertips.
Whether near or far in the region, a summer weekend of escape and family fun is only a car drive away.
