California Weekends - Californians Getaway


California weekends are the great escape getaways that would not be complete without a stay at the fabulous Orange County Hotels.  For starters, you might want to stay at oceanside resorts that include dining, concerts, shopping and diverse nightlife. For those visiting Southern California on a weekend, Huntington Beach is easily accessible from three major airports. John Wayne/Orange County (SNA) is about 15 minutes away, and Surf City can generally be reached in 30 to 45 minutes from Long Beach (LGB) and Los Angeles International (LAX). No stay would be complete without visiting the best that Southern California has to offer. Be sure to check out Huntington Beach, Newport Beach, Costa Mesa and Los Angeles, all a hop, skip and jump from each other.

California coast vacations range from a cooler climate in the redwoods of Eureka to the sandy beaches of San Diego. We know that life is a beach in California and you just have to step out to see the 1,000 or so miles of coast it has to offer!

Get out of California to see Las Vegas and The Strip! Los Angelinos, Orange County beach people and the world flies or drives daily to Las Vegas.  It's an escape, if but for just a day or two.  We plotted a chart, asked for lots of opinions on hotels and threw away a voucher for a free room at a budget property to stay at the luxury Bellagio Resort. It was worth it! Las Vegas offers about 150 hotels, some of them as large as cities. Here's a breakdown of some of the room numbers at the larger properties. You could actually live in these hotels! What's really amazing is that they are mostly down the street from each other and you can walk to them to look around. They welcome tourists. They want your business.
