Trips for two in California

California day trips

There is so much to do in California, it can be hard to pick just one thing! If you and your sweetie are looking to get away for the day, here are our bets for the top three most romantic day trips in California.

Palm Springs

From gorgeous golf courses to classic mid-century bars and lounges, Palm Springs is a great destination for a one-day getaway. Relax by the pool and work on your tan, play a few rounds, and enjoy the sunshine!

Newport Beach

Feel like dressing up and going for some swanky shopping (or window shopping)? Check out Newport Beach, dubbed the “American Riviera.” Don’t miss taking a romantic gondola ride along one of Newport’s canals.

Santa Barbara

Day spas! Wine country! Upscale restaurants! Fancy shopping! Santa Barbara has it all, and beautiful beaches to boot.
