Lakedale Resort by Corinne Whiting
Culture Dose: Get Your Glamp On
PRESS “REFRESH” AT SAN JUAN’S LAKEDALE RESORT So many of us mean to unplug more often than we do, and sadly it often takes a setting so serene and a WiFi signal so blessedly weak to force us to do just that. Once we finally power down and tune in, we wonder what the heck took so long. Destinations like Lakedale Resort on beautiful San Juan Island prove the perfect spot to disconnect and reconnect, and the benefits remain long after the ferry docks back on the mainland. (more…)

Kona Kai Resort San Diego
Winter Wanderlust: Stay Sunny, San Diego
Kona Kai Resort & Marina Kona Kai Resort & Marina is nestled on Shelter Island in the Point Loma neighborhood of San Diego. The drive on/off island is just over a mile long and only a few hundred feet wide. Kona Kai Resort lives up to its name—it is a resort, a destination in itself. Though a downtown jaunt is only a short drive where you can wonder around the popular Gaslamp District, it’s easy to spend your entire trip without leaving Shelter Island’s shores. Kona Kai is exquisitely manicured with views of the bay on one side and the marina on the other. Since the island is narrow, rooms on either side of the resort boast great views. All the rooms are comfortable, though not exceptionally spacious. You may want to (more…)
