Weekend Road Trips To Take This Summer!
Who doesn’t love a good road trip? Good music, good friends, and junk food aplenty! We would be up to drive just about anywhere in one of the Fiat convertibles that we’re giving away during Topless Summer! Check out our weekend getaway picks below. Who knows, maybe you’ll be driving to one of these destinations in your very own Fiat this summer!
The Coachella Valley is not just for music festivals. Between the Coachella dinosaurs and casinos aplenty, there’s plenty to do! You can spend the day hiking one of the many trails in nearby Joshua Tree or hanging out by the pool at the famous Parker hotel. Head out to Casino Morongo at night for some slot machine action!
Cruise down the coast to San Diego for the weekend! Petco Park, Sea World, The Gaslamp District, and The San Diego Zoo should keep you busy. Seriously, this town has everything. The nightlife is off the hook and there loads of things to do during the day as well! (and make sure to listen to our sister station, Energy 103.7 when you’re down there!)
San Luis Obispo
Meander up Pacific Coast Highway to San Luis Obispo, a gem of the central coast. There’s delicious wine, gorgeous secluded beaches, and incredible food. Hitting up one of the many Farmers Markets that SLO is known for on the way to the beach then swinging by a winery on the way back sounds pretty much perfect to us.
Just because it isn’t ski season doesn’t mean that the mountains are off-limits. Jet skiing, hiking, fishing, and picnicking await at Big Bear lake. It’s just a short drive from LA, and once you get on the mountain road, the drive get super fun!
Los Angeles Staycation!
We are fortunate to live in such a culturally rich city. Summer in LA is crawling with tourists. Why not become one of them for a weekend? We’re huge fans of the staycation, especially in a city with so much to see! Check out a neighborhood you’ve never been too. If you need some ideas about where to start, take a look at our Local Flavor features! Driving around LA with the top down and radio blasting is as good as any road trip as far as we’re concerned!
