Southern California is known for its pristine oak forests—thousands of acres of towering broadleaf trees that enjoy basking in the abundant sunshine almost as much as its people do. If you're looking to rustle up some leisure time, and prefer a getaway that's firmly rooted in luxury, this Escape is for you: a one-night stay for two at the scenic Rancho Bernardo Inn in San Diego. You and your companion will spend a night in a Deluxe Room and receive your choice of wine or beer tastings ($144) or two spa passes and a bottle of champagne ($149). All stays receive one appetizer or dessert at Veranda Fireside Lounge & Restaurant, valet parking, and Internet access. Pack a trunk and head to Rancho Bernardo's breathtaking 265-acre property in the shade of towering oaks. Your spacious guest room features a platform bed that'll have you sleeping like a log, as well as a flat-screen television, a private balcony or patio overlooking lush gardens, and included high-speed Internet.
