Treat Yo’ Self California Resorts

We all need a vacation.

If you have to ask from what? I would return your question with another question, Where have you been living for the last nine months and do you have room for one more? Socially distanced, of course. Flights, family visits, and even road trips may be on pause but if you’re lucky enough to live in the Golden State, you don’t have to travel far to feel rejuvenated. Below is a bare-bones list of crowd-sourced recommendations from our Instagram community of where to spend a few days getting a little R&R. Enjoy, and let us know if you give one of them a try!

A few notes:
*This post is not sponsored nor are any of these hotels endorsed by me. I am merely aggregating recommendations from others.
*As someone personally looking for a beautiful pool situation, that is primarily the area of focus in the below photographs.
*The images are not mine and are mostly snagged from company websites. Please alert me of any requests for removal and I will happily oblige 🙂
