Trip Ideas

Stay in a Mongolian-esque yurt complete with redwood decks and Adirondack chairs at the Treebones Resort in Big Sur, an eco-property perched high above the Pacific. Doubles from $155.

The Golf & Spa Experience at Newport Beach’s Palladian-inspired Resort at Pelican Hill—the latest place to stay on Route 1—combines the best of both worlds: guests get a round of golf on one of SoCal’s top courses and a treatment at its 23,000-square-foot spa. Doubles from $795.
