Last weekend we went down the St. Regis in Dana Point (South Orange County) for another "staycation". We had two free nights that I earned from a Starwood promotion that were expiring in mid-December.
Here is the view from the resort!
And this was the view from our room.
We spent some time in the pool and spa...
And took some long walks on the empty beaches...
The weather was great. Clear and warm during the day and clear and chilly at night. We watched sunset from our room.
We also really enjoyed seeing how decked-out the St. Regis gets for Christmas...
We loved the "California Snowmen"
There was also an amazing sand sculpture in the lobby.
The lights all around the property were stunning.
I thought this inverted Christmas tree was pretty cool!
And this tree was HUGE.
Overall we had a great time at this beautiful resort. The one negative about the resort is that it's really isolated. There is literally NOTHING to do around it. So if you ever go, be sure to pack some good books to read!
Have you seen any fun Christmas decorations this year?
