Swaying palm trees. White sand beaches. Warm banana bread. Juicy pineapples. The chillest of vibes. Maui, Hawaii is a dream destination, and although we’ve been living in the San Francisco Bay Area for almost 10 years – where a trip to Hawaii is a feasible weekend trip – we’d yet to visit until this summer! All I can say is … what the heck is wrong with us?! We’ve WASTED the last 10 years of my life not visiting Maui every chance we can get! Although we only had 3 days to spend in Maui, we fell head over heels. Our Maui itinerary is the perfect way to spend 3 days in Maui, from snorkeling to the Road to Hana to a luau to eating as much shave ice and banana bread as the human body can physically stand. What are you waiting for? Shaka, brah!

We Californians like to joke that the only state we love as much as California is Colorado. (I say joke, but we’re being totally serious.) But I think it’s because we share a lot in common with our landlocked friend-state: legal weed (hayyy), glorious snow-capped mountains, and an unofficial state-wide obsession with rock climbing. Something else our states both share is an endless number of towns, villages, cities, and parks to explore on a weekend getaway! There are also tons of fun, beautiful, and downright weird places to explore on a weekend getaway in Colorado. We partnered with some of our favorite travel bloggers to create this list of the best weekend getaways in Colorado!
Mendocino, California is located just a few hours north of San Francisco on California’s stunning Pacific Coast Highway. It’s one of the best weekend trips from San Francisco, and we’ve been up to visit multiple times. Mendocino is known for it’s world-class wine and stunning coastal views, and the area is a perfect spot for a romantic getaway or girl’s trip! The first time we visited Mendocino, we happened to go tidepooling the same day that some kind of Porsche Club had their annual kite outing? No, I’m serious – the beach was like, FILLED with rich old people flying kites. So for a while we had the weird impression that Mendocino was full of people who drive Porsches and fly kites. Which, it turns out, it isn’t … usually. Here are our favorite things to do in Mendocino!
