Told you once, told you twice, take a trip to Telluride. This gem of Colorado has all you need for a proper decompression session and more with its laid-back vibe and scenery that’ll make you feel like you’re living in a postcard.

Paso Robles

Nestled in the heart of wine country, Paso Robles is the perfect spot for a little R&R (that’s “rest and rosé,” if you’re wondering). With over 200 wineries to choose from, you can sip your way through the region like a true sommelier. When you’re not busy eating and drinking your weight in wine and cheese, try a hot air balloon ride, soak in some hot springs, or just kick back by the pool.

Joshua Tree

Picture this: you’re surrounded by stunning rock formations, the sun is setting in the distance, and you’re vibing out to some sick tunes. Sounds perfect, right? Well, that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Joshua Tree is a playground for adventure-seekers. You can go rock climbing, hiking, or just get lost in the desert for a bit (please bring a compass and a map, and please don’t actually get lost). And if you’re lucky, you might even catch a glimpse of some desert wildlife. Plus, the stargazing here is out of this world (literally). So grab your fave pair of sunnies, your camera, and your sense of adventure, and get ready to live your best desert life in Joshua Tree.

Boujee, in the best way possible. Head to Sonoma to be surrounded by rolling vineyards, lush gardens, and some of the most incredible farm-to-table restaurants you’ve ever experienced. You can sip on award-winning vinos all day long while soaking up the NorCal sun. When you’re not busy sipping, explore the charming downtown area, hike through the redwoods, or just enjoy a day in the sun by the pool with your besties.

Grab your Birkenstocks, your flannel shirt, and your sense of adventure, and get ready to experience the ultimate coastal getaway.
