Go Away this Summer... to Lompoc

While L.A. is a great place to live, sometimes we need a quick getaway to recharge our batteries. This is where Lompoc comes in...

Located off Highway 101 where scenic Highway 1 meets Route 246, just 155 miles northwest of Los Angeles,  Lompoc boasts a rich landscape woven with majestic rolling hills and lush vineyards nestled on California’s Central Central Coast.
From the splendor of the fully restored La Purisma Mission, to colorful outdoor murals in Old Town; from exceptional Pinots and Chardonnays along the Lompoc Wine Trail, plus biking, hiking, birding, surfing, sky diving and world-class golf, Lompoc is sure to recharge even the most work-consumed negative nellies with the opportunity to do nothing. While, those of use that need a reason to travel, can look into some of my favorite events scheduled this summer:
