The Terranea is one of my favorite places to go…even for a night with the girlfriend or my hubby. It’s like another country….so so so close to where we live and yet we forget to go.
I just got ahold of their DECEMBER 2016 ACTIVITIES: The below is what they just sent me…and I may have jazzed it up a bit because…well…it’s more my writing.
Best place on the planet. (okay…maybe not the planet…but Los Angeles for sure!! No matter who you’re spending the holidays with, Terranea Resort has crafted a quintessential holiday experience for everyone.
