@DanielleZara: Have you thought about Half Moon Bay? Or what about driving down the coast a bit and staying near Hearst Castle. The tours are really cool and it’s also right by the beach.

I LOVE Carmel but I’m not sure about cost there (my grandparent’s lived in Carmel Valley so we always stayed with them).

Mendocino/Ukiah are my favorite places on earth. SOOO beautiful.

@DanielleZara: I LOVE Monterey. I used to go there all the time. Go to Fisherman’s Wharf and the Aquarium.

One of my favorite weekend getaways is Capitola by Santa Cruz.   I also love Carmel/Monterey and go there fairly often.  Last time I went to Monterey we stayed at the Portola Spa for about $100 a night, via priceline bidding.  Rooms were usually $250 a night, so we were happy.  Big Sur is great too!

FYI – if you are looking to be outdoors a lot, keep in mind it’s supposed to rain all weekend ๐Ÿ™

@DanielleZara: Capitola is a small romantic beach town.  There is not a ton to do, but if you are looking for a relaxing romantic weekend getaway, it’s perfect.  You can always go to Santa Cruz during the day or for dinner if you need a bit more excitement.
