Zip line in the San Gabriel Mountains

Navitat Canopy Adventures is a zip line park in Wrightwood, now open for the season with two new tours—a free-fall rappelling zip line (weekends only) and a dual, side-by-side racing zip line. navitat.com

Sleep, eat, and breathe b-ball

Conveniently across the street from the Staples Center, Luxe City Center Hotel is downtown LA’s only boutique hotel, and it just underwent a multimillion-dollar reno. So get your fill of basketball this month, or book now for Bieber and Beyoncé in June. luxecitycenter.com

Get into a Bentley in SF

The keys to a great vacation: The St. Regis San Francisco is offering unlimited use of a 2013 Bentley GT, Bentley GTC, or Bentley Mulsanne, via their En Route to Excellence aficionado package, through 2013. Chauffeur optional. stregissanfrancisco.com

Fly to Mexico from the O.C.

Going south and don’t like your travel options? AirTran Airways will increase its direct flights to Cabo from Orange County in June, to twice daily. It also offers directs to Cancun, Mexico City, and more. airtran.com

Anticipate Warner Springs’ makeover

SD-based Pacific Hospitality Group has acquired the 2,400-acre Warner Springs Ranch—natural hot springs and all. It plans to pump $50 million into redeveloping the resort, which opened in the 1920s. Looks like Casa del Zorro might have some competition when the first phase is completed next spring.

Hotel Missoni

Hotel

Most Fashionable Hotel Ever

Sometimes one must go the distance for stylish accommodations. If you ever find yourself in Edinburgh or Kuwait, twirl around the interior of Hotel Missoni, designed by Rosita Missoni of the iconic Italian house of couture. Expect an eyeful in every room and colorful, typically Italian experiences, like a risotto master class and shopping discounts. Kuwait or bust! P.S. Six more glamorous properties are in various stages of development, in case you're planning any future trips to Turkey, Qatar, Oman, Mauritius, Brazil, or Cape Town, South Africa. hotelmissoni.com
