We made the decision to go to California on vacation. No surprise, right? My sister encouraged us to branch out on our choice of destination. Mexico or the Dominican Republic would be an adventure. She was right about that, but when we looked at our goals for the trip, a passport-worthy location didn't fit.We are looking for a low-key trip to recharge our batteries. One goal was to stay in a hotel that provided proximity to restaurants, entertainment, and possibly a little coffee shop for some morning energy. From what I have been told once you get to your resort in Mexico you don't leave your resort. There is something to be said about staff to bring you what want when you want it, but we are cool with doing for ourselves. Another reason we chose Cali is that we love Cali. You can't beat the sunshine and low humidity. Cali is beautiful. Driving down the PCH has to be one of the most beautiful sights. So for the next few days we'll get some R&R in our favorite state. Stay tuned for the relaxing details.
