A relatively short drive north will bring you to the heart of the wine country. One of the most popular destinations there is the Sonoma Mission Inn in Boyes Hot Springs. This luxury resort and spa is just a hop, skip and a jump away from some of California's premiere wineries, so plan to squeeze in a full weekend of wine tasting. Or play a round of golf and then indulge in a warm mud bath or a relaxing massage. Their award winning restaurants will keep you fueled along the way.
Both Mill Rose Inn and Sonoma Mission Inn hold the American Automobile Association's coveted Four Diamond rating, a sure sign of excellence. AAA's travel services can help guide you to these and other prescreened destinations, assuring you that these establishments meet their stringent qualifications.
For those lucky folks on the East Coast, paradise is just a few miles off the coast of Massachusetts -- Martha's Vineyard. Well known as a destination hot spot for the rich and famous, Martha's Vineyard offers something for just about every budget. Surf their site for details about lodging, restaurants and all the great little shops and art galleries adorning the brick-lined streets of this island retreat. If a more low key weekend is in order, The Hamptons in New York is an ideal destination, offering plenty of beaches and charming local wineries.
From coast to coast and every place tucked away in between, there's a perfect weekend getaway for you to discover -- all it takes is a little research and imagination. You can find rest and relaxation right in your own backyard, if you know where to look, and the results will leave you revitalized as the next workweek begins.
Best wishes & happy surfing!
