A Relaxing Weekend in Santa Barbara

A Relaxing Weekend in Santa Barbara

I’ve been to Santa Barbara a handful of times, but only for day trips and never overnight! It’s such a beautiful city, only 2 hours up the coast from Los Angeles and so much fun to explore. Eddie and I decided to make it a weekend getaway this time, taking it slow instead of trying to pack in as much as possible in one day. Since we’ve been here before, we didn’t feel the need to revisit the usual tourist attractions, and instead spent a lot of time relaxing at our beautiful hotel, going on bike rides, and taking the most gorge walk around the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden.

Borrego Springs: Where To Stay

Borrego Springs: Where To Stay

Eddie and I started a tradition last year of going on a lil Christmas getaway to a California city we'd never been to before. We stayed in a darling Airstream in Temecula last year, and this year we decided to check out the beautiful desert town of Borrego Springs, located in the northeast area of San Diego county. As much as I love LA, it's always so refreshing to get out of the big city and take a few days to relax and recharge - and Borrego Springs is really the perf place to do just that. Surrounded by Anza-Borrego Desert State Parkand being California's first Dark Sky Community, you won't find any big chains in this charming small town. I wanted to share our experience staying at the Borrego Valley Inn with you, and spoiler alert - it was wonderful. Keep scrolling for lots of pics from our stay!
