Where you’re staying:

The 287-room Rancho Bernardo Inn is having a moment. It celebrated its 50th anniversary just last year and made Travel + Leisure’s list of World’s Best Hotels 2014. Not to mention, the newly reborn restaurant Avant (formerly El Bizcocho) is getting rave reviews, even from its longtime regulars.

What you’re doing:

On property, the Inn has 18 holes of golf, three swimming pools, and a full-service spa and wellness center. For hikers, Lake Hodges is a seven-minute drive north of the hotel. The Highland Valley Trail is an easy 4-mile loop and the North Shore is a 14.8-miler, also great for biking. Beer and wine lovers visiting the area can take a different kind of trail—ask the hotel about special packages for tastings at local craft breweries and wineries. For your main dining event, try Avant. Our critic Troy Johnson called the kitchen’s efforts “near flawless,” with “enough excellent [menu] options… to live up to the quite phenomenal new destination that is Avant.” Sold! Rooms start at $199. 17550 Bernardo Oaks Drive
