Ideas for fun/cheap 1 night getaway btwn Malibu and Santa Barbara?

Jump to last reply

Hi there, not so much anymore, but for over a decade, one of the oldtimer Fodors veterans (of the Europe board - - I have only rarely come nosing around here on the US forum) - - planning to be in Los Angeles last weekend this month (August) on a mix of business and family stuff (Hollywood/midtown) and looking for some of change of scenery just for one night - - could be coastal or are there interesting and not too crazy expensive places to stay up in the canyons? Looks generally kind of undeveloped past the border between Ventura County and Santa Barbara county.

Anything around Channel Islands beach? Anything for recreation there, besides actually going out to Catalina (dining? wineries? parks, other exploring?)

Quick answers will be especially appreciated - - you can probably tell that I came here looking for guidance before I did much of internet searching or anything else, other than look at a map.

But of course, grateful for any and all answers,

Best wishes,

Rex
