Weekend Getaway ideas from SoCal

My husband & I want to plan a kid free weekend getaway somewhere at a nice resort on the beach. We're willing to drive or fly 2-3 hours. Looking for ideas!

Drive or fly 2-3 hours....from where????

Yes, I see you said SoCal but one can drive for hours and still be in SoCal.

From the generic SoCal area I would fly to a Mexican resort town

If you are leaving from LA (you do not say where you are leaving from) I would go to Santa Barbara. San Diego is also very nice.

Otherwise Dr.Z's idea of flying to Mexico is good. Currently researching a trip for the fall to Puerto Vallarta and the flight only takes about 3 hours. Great restaurants in all price ranges.

Do you have passports, mustangmel? You'll need them for Mexico.

Sorry, we're in Temecula (Riverside County). We do have passports. We usually go to Cabo but we were looking for something different. I was looking for recommendations on specific resorts too.

Laguna Beach has a number of nice beachy resorts.

Surf and Sand Hotel is nice as is the Montage.
