Though a large cosmopolitan city with notorious traffic, you can easily find a luxury accommodation with a pool just outside of Los Angeles for a more remote experience. For a unique trip, sail to Catalina or the Channel Islands National Park. Surfers have plenty of options, from Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, and Laguna Beach, where they can find a luxury cottage near the beach. If trees and mountains are more your thing, head inland to Cleveland or San Bernardino National Forests. There you can find plenty of trails to hike or mountain bike. There are accommodations large enough to fit families and groups of friends, or smaller cozy options for romantic partners or solo travelers. To make your journey the most comfortable, search for other amenities like a fireplace, BBQ, or extra beds for those bigger groups.
