Most Romantic Road Trips and Destinations in Southern California
It seems like just yesterday that we were opening gifts for Christmas and ringing in the New Year with our loved ones. Before you know it, Valentine’s Day will be here, and you will be racing to the florist to purchase a dozen roses. The team at Carlsbad Auto Service is here to help make sure Valentine’s Day doesn’t surprise you this year and has put together a list of the most romantic road trips in California.
Ojai: The scenic route between L.A. and Ojai usually takes about two hours. There are cool places to stop at along the way, such as a tour of Mission San Buenaventura, also known as “Mission By the Sea.” Ojai is the perfect destination if you are looking for a break from city life. This is a charming, picturesque town, complete with yummy restaurants, hiking, and even horseback riding.
Palm Springs: The road trip to Palm Springs isn’t the most beautiful drive, but there are fun and popular places to stop at along the way, such as Hadleys for shakes and snacks and the Cabazon Outlets for some crazy discounts — perfect place to get your loved one a little something!
San Luis Obispo: This is another favorite road trip with the famous Madonna Inn being the last stop on the map. The Madonna Inn is filled with themed rooms — there is even a pink tennis court! This inn practically screams Valentine’s Day.
Solvang: Located in the wine country of Santa Ynez Valley, Solvang was founded in 1911 by Danish-American immigrants. This quaint little town is unlike any other place in California. It is definitely a destination you will remember.
Big Sur: Big Sur is easily one of the most beautiful places in all of California. Nestled along the coast, this drive will take your breath away. Stop at several restaurants clustered along the drive that are not only delicious, but offer you an exceptional view of the ocean.
