Sunshine, palm trees, and warm water: It doesn’t get much better than summer in Southern California. Inspirato offers more than 40 accommodations across the area, all within a four-hour drive from each other. From beachfront resorts to luxury downtown hotels to charming options with sweeping views, our hotel, resort, and residence options are quintessential SoCal. As Inspirato Member Taylor W. said of a recent stay at the Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes, “If all of our experiences are like this one then Inspirato will be one the best things my family has ever done!” See it for yourself.
Golf in San Diego
For legendary golf, look no further than Torrey Pines Golf Course. Featuring two 18-hole courses famously known for hosting top PGA competitions like the US Open, this spot is a local landmark. Our rooms at the Lodge at Torrey Pines are located right on the course. Alternatively, stay with us at the award-winning Fairmont Grand del Mar, one of just a few Forbes triple five-star resorts in the world and home to The Grand Golf Club. With more than 90 courses in the San Diego area, there’s a fairway for everyone.
Unwind in Palm Springs/Coachella Valley
Yes, Palm Springs is hot in the summer, but there is still plenty to do. The city and surrounding area are home to dozens of art galleries, museums (the art museum offers free admission on Thursday evenings), concert venues, and acclaimed restaurants (the newly opened SO.PA just earned attention from the New York Times). Plus, there are plenty of ways to stay in the shade. Our Inspirato Residence Vista San Jacinto is located in a canyon in the shadow of the mountains and includes a private pool, a covered patio, and an outdoor kitchen. When you’re ready to break a sweat again, just step outside onto your private tennis court.
Spa Day in Dana Point
Following a $40 million renovation, the newly re-launched Monarch Beach Resort is an Orange County oasis. Perched right on the coast, the ocean views from the resort are unparalleled. Make a reservation for some relaxation at the brand-new Miraval Life in Balance Spa. The soothing facility’s massages, facials, and treatments are designed to nourish mind, body, and soul.
Family Time in Rancho Palos Verdes
Like we mentioned, Inspirato members love the Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes as an ideal family getaway. Located on a coastal peninsula just south of Los Angeles, Terranea’s incredible ocean views are enough to make jaws drop, but it’s the resort’s thoughtful roster of amenities that will keep your itinerary packed. A waterslide, children’s splash zone, kids’ club, and nature activity center are kid-friendly, while golf and a 50,000-square-foot spa will keep grown-ups entertained.
Glamour in Los Angeles County
Just a block off Sunset Boulevard, the London West Hollywood is in the middle of Los Angeles action. Fine dining, swanky bars, and boundless entertainment are all located in the surrounding neighborhood. You may very well spot a celebrity or two without leaving the property. Its rooftop pool deck and bustling vibe are known to attract the bold and beautiful.
Wine and Dine in Santa Barbara
Flanked by the Santa Ynez Mountains and situated on the coast, the Santa Barbara region boasts more than 100 wineries. Sample some of this prize-winning vino at the California Wine Festival, scheduled for July 14-16, and stay just minutes away with our new partner, The Canary Hotel, downtown Santa Barbara’s only luxury accommodation. For a bird’s-eye view of the American Riviera, opt for a suite in the hills above town at Belmond El Encanto.
