San Diego
1. La Jolla Indian Campground
Pauma Valley

Look out for: An all-levels bike park and zipline thrills
Just a short drive North of SD County is the La Jolla Indian Campground, where Mother Nature will rejuvenate your body and spirit. If you want to get away from the city for the weekend, this is a great spot to enjoy fresh air, build a campfire, roast some s’mores, and go tubing down the San Luis Rey River. The
Luiseño Bike Park offers an expansive network of trails for riders of all skill levels across varying terrain, from leisurely beginner’s paths to quad-busting inclines and thrilling descents. In season, you can also take an electrifying ride on the longest, fastest zipline in Southern California, and this summer, a brand new water park will debut. Online reservations are required for camping, and outside firewood is prohibited due to the gold spotted oak borer, but there’s a general store near the campgrounds where it can be purchased, along with food, ice, and other necessities.

2. Sunny’s Spa & Beauty Lounge

Look out for: A Mediterranean grotto with aromatherapy
Located inside
The Seabird Resort, this sleek, chic spa brings Southern California vibes with a view overlooking the iconic Oceanside Pier. Services range from an express menu of ten of the spa’s most popular services in a quick, 30-minute session to an extravagant The Soul Ritual—an exfoliating body scrub, healing wrap and full body massage with aromatherapy sound bath, breath work and special attention to your scalp, hands and feet customized with your choice of six different aromatherapy options. Reconnect with a special someone by scheduling Duo in the Suites, a curated spa experience for two that combines a massage with facials, wraps and scrubs. Whatever you choose, leave yourself plenty of extra time in The Cove, a modern take on the traditional Mediterranean grotto experience that includes a dry warming space, cooling mist and an aromatherapy sanarium.
