Whether you’re celebrating something special or just want to spend some quality time with your best friends, a girls’ weekend getaway is always a good idea. To help us curate the perfect list of California getaways, we turned to Cortnie Purdy Fausner, cofounder and creative director of The Venue Report.

Sun-dappled afternoons turn into candlelit dinners at the onsite restaurant, Veladora, or pony up to the bar for a hand-crafted aperitif.
