Weekends in California can be truly extraordinary! If you’re looking for a weekend adventure in the Golden State, here are some of the best places to help you make the most of your rest days:

Vision Quest Ranch Safari B&B - Are you looking for a Safari experience without having to leave the U.S.? Well, today’s your lucky day! Vision Quest is a ranch in Salinas, Monterey County, that wants to provide its guests’ some real wilderness experience! Besides the incredible animals (including Zebras, Lions, Tigers, Elephants, and more!), you’ll also be minutes away from some of Monterey’s best restaurants, including Cannery Row, Carmel, Pebble Beach, and many more!


Railroad Park Resort - Have you ever wondered what it was like to sleep in a caboose? Well, it’s time to put those questions to sleep because you’re about to find out! Railroad Park Resort consists of the legendary Caboose Motel. You’ll stay the night in a caboose car which was part of some legendary freight train lines, like the Santa Fe, the Southern Pacific, and The Great Northern! And the caboose is just one part of the park-- there are countless cabins and a whole RV park that will suit the needs of those who still think caboose living is too extreme for their taste! The Railroad Park is located at the foot of Castle Crags, 50 miles north of Dunsmuir!

Napa Valley Wine Country - Famous for its legendary wines and heaven-like landscapes, Napa Valley is the perfect place for the person who values beauty! Napa Valley is also home to some of the most aesthetically preserved Victorian-era houses, such as the Old World Inns, and artistic masterpieces like the Moon House and Brannan Cottage! Taste some delicious wine and take a ride with the Wine Train. This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience!


Harry Houdini Estate - Yes, you can really stay at Houdini’s house! Located a kilometer away from Beverly Hills, the estate consists of 2 homes with seven bedrooms combined and Harry Houdini’s infamous water tank, where he practiced some of his deadliest performances before going on stage!

Morning Song Farm - You can’t get closer to the countryside than this! Located in Southern California, Morning Song allows you to truly connect with the rural life while also enjoying luxuries such as great views and private hot tubs. But if such tender living isn’t what you came to Morning Song for, you can take in some farm trades-- get your hands dirty by learning the skill of cheese making, making jam, or gathering eggs! And to top all of this, you also get to interact with some of the cutest animals in California.
