Getting Out of Dodge

Where does one go for a quick, coastal weekend getaway without being too far from Los Angeles? Orange County, San Diego or Santa Barbara might come to mind, but they require hours of sitting in Friday traffic just to get there. Thanks to Terranea Resort, a new world-class resort located on the Palos Verdes Peninsula, those extra hours one saves getting there can be made up lounging poolside. Finally LA has a coastal resort of its own.

Just 15 miles past LAX, the 102-acre, Mediterranean-style resort sits atop the bluffs showcasing breathtaking Pacific Ocean views. One truly feels on top of the world while staying at the resort.

Terranea offers exceptional amenities to fit any guest's needs. For the sun worshiper, there are three pools on the property. One has a waterslide for the more adventurous and one for the 18-over crowd. The 25,000 square-foot spa offers a full menu of services for those looking for a "Zen out" experience. There are miles of hiking trails around the resort and a 9-hole golf course if one is looking for some outdoor activity. After a hard day of vacation one of the many restaurants and lounges on-site will satisfy any culinary craving.

With an official open date of June 12th the resort is now accepting reservations. Book by June 8th for the grand opening special and receive 50% all rates.
