Tucked back into a beautiful landscape courtesy of Sunset Boulevard winding up the Santa Monica Mountains, peppered with tall palm trees and evergreens as well as sweeping ocean views, is the small neighborhood of Pacific Palisades. With wonderful sceneries and irresistible lure, this dream town can very well be your getaway place for spring. Here are the best retreats in the Pacific Palisades area where you can enjoy an unforgettable spring vacation.
Channel Road Inn
This relaxing haven by the sea is the perfect alternative to chain hotels. Built in 1910, the Colonial Revival building has been restored into a lovely inn that has the look and feels of a charming, small town bed and breakfast. Channel Road Inn offers individually decorated guest rooms with fireplaces, jetted spa tubs and balconies. Enjoy peace and quiet with a cup of coffee in hand in the private garden, patio or spacious front porch. Complimentary amenities include a full breakfast buffet, afternoon wine and hors d'oeuvres and freshly baked cookies. And with bicycles available for use, you can go for a ride along the beach or the Santa Monica Pier.
