Traveling By Car
Our trip to Mission Valley Inn in Southern California turned out to be an amazing experience. One I will never forget, and I will return again one day. I made a reservation at this Inn without realizing it was a historical landmark. Several Presidents have stayed at this Inn. The Inn has a tour that takes place daily at 2:00 PM and 4:30 PM. It is well worth taking the tour because you are taken into the main ballroom, now used for private functions, and other areas that are not open to the public. The Inn also has an amazing Spa, which I managed to get a great manicure at and sit in their relaxation room where I was served drinks and appetizers. Later I decided to go to the pool and have lunch. Once I sat down in a lounge chair a waiter came over to take my order, not only was the food super good, it was such a treat to have this ambiance. Since I was alone, Lee was at a business meeting, it was a great place for me to spend the day. Afterwards, I went shopping in the boutique shops found on the perimeter of the buildings exterior. I highly recommend this as a weekend get-a-way. So Cool!! If you want to extend the experience, take Amtrak and have the hotel pick you up at the station. Truly A trip you won’t forget.
