Many Archer girls may want to spend time with their families and friends during the holidays, but don’t want to venture out of town. Why not travel to a local getaway near Los Angeles?
Located on the waters of the Marina, lighthouse and all, Fisherman’s Village is the perfect getaway from busy streets and tall buildings. According to its website, the village offers New-England style scenery and tons of restaurants to choose from, like water-bicycling, fishing and sailing.
Santa Monica Mountains
For adventure seekers, the Santa Monica Mountains make a perfect weekend day trip, according to the National Park Service. Even though the mountain range is located in North Los Angeles, you’ll feel like you’re miles from home. It has more than 500 miles of different trails that have glamorous views of the Pacific Ocean at the top of the mountains, and even has its own old-style movie ranch.
On just a 21-mile long and eight-mile wide island, you can zip line, snorkel, swim, and more on Catalina, according to its website. The Island is filled with boutique-type Bed & Breakfast hotels, five star restaurants where you can order the catch of the day— fresh off the island of course — and a plethora of water-front specialty shops to choose from.
