What’s that I see in the distance? A three-day weekend celebrating Martin Luther King Day! Make it a memorable one with an escape or a mini-vacation for the entire family. In case your travel budget needs some inspiration and assistance, here are our top picks for fun times in California that holiday weekend:
SEE SAN DIEGO PACKAGE
Town and County Resort, San Diego, CA
Want to see more and do more with the long weekend? Town and County Resort has it covered when you book their See San Diego Package. It comes with a 2-night stay, breakfast buffet for two, discounted parking and they’ll throw in the hottest tour ticket in town – 2 adult passes for the Old Town Trolley Tour.
Ride aboard these vintage trolley cars to San Diego’s biggest attractions and neighborhoods, including Coronado, Old Town, downtown San Diego, Gaslamp Quarter, and Balboa Park. This hop-on, hop-off tour wouldn’t be complete without their animated guides who’ll deliver funny quips and interesting historical tidbits at every corner.
AERIAL TRAMWAY PACKAGE
Palm Mountain Resort, Palm Springs, CA
Bring family fun to a new level when you take them on a surreal experience on the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway, the world’s largest rotating tramcar. This exciting ride will take you up 2.5 miles to San Jacinto Mountain State Park and Wilderness Area – that’s at an elevation of 8,516 feet! The journey – and the spectacular views that come with it – are all included with the Aerial Tramway Package at the Palm Mountain Resort, a fantastic find in this desert oasis. This package also includes a courtyard room and FREE continental breakfast at Ruby’s Diner for two adults and two children.
WINCHESTER MYSTERY HOUSE PACKAGE
Plaza Suites, Santa Clara, CA
Mo’ money, mo’ mystery. That will be your family chant when you book this value-packed package at the Plaza Suites. Fresh from renovations, this property features two-room suites (did someone say ‘privacy’?) and comes with FREE cooked-to-order breakfast for the entire family (let someone else do the dishes for once). Starting at only $119, the Winchester Mystery House Package comes with a 1-night stay in a two-room suite, 2 adult Winchester Mystery House tickets (you can buy discount tix for the kids at the front desk), FREE breakfast and FREE evening cocktails.
If the mention of the spooky house that has stairs that ’lead to nowhere’ doesn’t get your children deliriously excited, then we don’t know what will.
