In partnership with our Lincoln friends
Montecito is like California is like California. Boasting both scenery and relaxation, this small town is a clear and easy getaway from both Los Angeles and San Francisco. So what could a health-leaning but not quite crunchy weekend look like in a modern garden of Eden? Well you can: Relax in a plush suite on Rosewood Miramar Beach. Slip on the pristine coast in a hotel Lincoln SUV (the intuitive design makes the driving very reflexive, even a quick turn feels rejuvenated). Walk on the hills. Eat fresh food from field to fork. Whether you do all of the above or one, with the epic untouched state beauty as a backdrop, Montecito is pure magic.
Rosewood Miramar Beach
We have collected lyrics about Rosewood Miramar Beach Before, this dreamy spot on the Pacific side deserves every word. First, the setting. It simply cannot be beat. Expect spacious balconies; Informal and elegant atmosphere; And the utilities are awesome. I spent a weekend in luxury at the spa (we like Lincoln Renewal Package), And elegant Caruso’s brunches, spinning lavish courtesy of Lincoln to nearby attractions, or simply be prepared with the latest Goop book club Address by the pool is a balm for the soul.
Ideally, a weekend is a balanced study: relaxation, rejuvenation, celery juice and champagne, sunshine, and shopping. For all bits and pieces that do not reach the box, Goop sundries Fills the gaps. Step into the lobby, discover the quaint cocktail bar, and realize you’ve forgotten a dress? covered up. Decipher your own skincare routine just to find Bamboo toothbrush And Cocoflos Missing? Do not worry. Attract a new, decadent swimsuit Foundrae necklace To wear a swimming pool? Swing to storage.
Spending a weekend in a new city – wandering through unfamiliar streets and going to the seemingly more attractive shops, galleries, and bakeries – is pure fun. Wendy Foster has two stores in this jungle neck, but Angel is our focus. Perhaps the clever organization of everyday necessities and the pretty and quirky dresses designed for a beach barbecue is what attracted us for the first time. But it’s inexpensive – and not affordable – jewelry, quirky stationery, and soft sportswear from The Great that keep us coming back again. Whatever the secret sauce to Foster’s sensual taste, leaving Angel empty-handed is almost impossible.
Kick off your weekend with a smoothie from Juice Ranch. We are part of the Breakfast Club, and it’s a great mix of berries, spinach, bee pollen, almond butter and homemade almond milk. Like many local companies, Juice Ranch is pivoted with the times, and contactless photoshoot is encouraged. If you plan to spend a morning exploring Montecito’s back roads and shaded lanes, swing for an extra juice or two for the ride.
The terrain of Montecito is almost picturesque. Spend a lot of time enjoying nature and trading a picnic lunch. Al-Sahel Village Naseer Road Two genin Contains provisions for the outing. Smoked salmon on thick bread with cream cheese, avocado salad, or a crunchy chopped cup (or both!) And delicious lemonade just all of this travels well. If you really brag, mini one-person champagne bottles are a perfect fit.
Oliver Serves the most amazing dinners in town. Even if you are sitting inside, thanks to the floor-to-ceiling sliding doors, you will feel as though you are dining out. Subdued and calm decor speaks to simple vegan cuisine from field to fork, and kombucha mocktails make eating the teeth easy. The menu changes regularly, but no matter what you order it, innovative sauces, delicious crunchy nuts and seeds are what make every vegetable sing. Sit back, enjoy the view and ask for everything – everything Which – which Hassan.
Butterfly Beach is all about as dreamy as it sounds. And yes, depending on the season, this sandy expanse may be home to a kaleidoscope of fluttering wings. Load the luggage compartment securely for a walk and go early to disable the parking spot. Or swing by later in the afternoon to catch a pink striped sunset. If you have kids in tow, don’t forget the binoculars: this pristine beach is popular with dolphins and even whale spotting (although like butterflies, this depends on the season).
Lotus Land feels that it belongs to another galaxy. Thirty-seven acres of gorgeous vegetation (curated by the previous owner, opera singer Ganna Walska, who bought the venue in 1941) is divided into themed gardens. There’s no such thing as strolling from one garden to the next, and indulging in the drama and sheer wonders of so many rare plants in one place. Highlights include the Tropical Garden (frosts are rare in Montecito, so heat-loving plants thrive) and the Manicured Japanese Garden, designed by Frank Fuji. The insect garden is the key to Lotus Land’s completely organic success: The special plants attract pollinators and natural predators that feed on the inevitable pests, which means no pesticides necessary. The entire philosophy here focuses on sustainable practices – even the compost is made on site from plant cuttings. Make sure to book in advance and not leave any traces behind.
