Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif.--When visiting L.A. you can stay cheap at many hotels that surround LAX (Los Angeles Interntaional Airport) or head toward the inner city--L.A., Hollywood, Burbank, etc., where there are modest hotels plus some of the finest in the world. The thing most of them lack, however, is the beach!
One of the newest coastal resorts combines ocean views, golf and spa options, and easy access to the best of Southern California themed attractions--and it sits on the land where a theme park once drew large tourist crowds. Terranea Resort was built on the Marineland property where parents used to take kids to be entertained by dancing dolphins and whales.
Today, you can look out your hotel room and still see dolphins and whales--but only in a more natural state off-coast . )Parents frolic with their children around several swimming pools, cook marshmallows and wieners over a fire, explore the nature trails leading to the beach, or fit in a 9 hole round of golf on site before heading down the road 5 minutes to Trump National Golf Club for a workout on the most expensive golf course in the U.S.
Terranea Resort (terranea.com) is a gracious inhabitor of the space long serving entertainment purposes--and the views of the Palos Verdes Peninsula are some of the finest to be had.
