You need to get away for the weekend but you can't go too far or it's too last minute. Staycations are becoming a popular way to relax. Turn off your laptop and cell phone. Los Angeles' Pacific Coastline has a lot to offer: quaint motels, cute beaches, bars, spas, museums and shopping.
Great private beach in Malibu. Even fun to have a drink at sunset with friends
This is the perfect place to experience new age-y LA. You can get crystals, creativity cards and jewelry.
Deck by the beach is even great in wintertime with heaters. Good piña coladas. Fun for children to look for dolphins.
This is the heart of Venice. One of the sweetest spots to have a dreamy walk, imagine owning a little boat and living by the water.
Finally, an truly fun and happening bar in Santa Monica. Feels like walking into an A&F ad. It is best during the summer when you can watch the sun set over the ocean. During the winter, they cover up and use heaters so it's great year round.
Fun place for children or tourists. Has a lot of history. Bring a sweater if it's a little cold outside. Highlights are the old carousel and Ferris wheel at sunset.
