Before you know it, Valentine’s Day will be here, and you might find yourself in desperate need of a few ideas on how you can spend and celebrate the day with your loved one. The team at Convoy Auto Repair is here to help, as we think a romantic drive along the beautiful California coast is the perfect way to spend your day.
Here are some of the most lovely and romantic drives in San Diego and Southern California:
Sunrise Scenic Byway: The name of this 24-mile road trip through East San Diego County says it all. Bask in the glow of the sun, while you travel through Laguna Mountain Recreation Area and along the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail in the Cleveland National Forest.
Ortega Highway Mountain Escape: During the winter months, you will find yourself transported to a winter wonderland, as you drive past canyons, forests, hillsides, and even boulders dusted with a light blanket of snow.
Rim of the World Scenic Byway: If the name alone isn’t enough to persuade you to drive this byway, we think the route that traverses through the wilderness of the Los Angeles basin and Big Bear Lake is enough to sweep you off your feet, which is exactly what we are looking for on Valentine’s Day.
Pacific Coast Highway: Even though this road is the quintessential highway of Southern California, you can travel along this highway and end up in the beautiful place of Big Sur. Instead of just planning a Valentine’s day drive, you can spend a weekend nestled in the forests and mountains of Big Sur, which is the ultimate romantic getaway.
The Palomar Mountain Loop: This loop is not only a picturesque scenic drive, but you can visit the observatory, restaurants, and shops located along the way. The drive is only an hour, but plan on it being longer, as the temptation to stop and take pictures will be quite strong.
Before you embark on your journey, we recommend bringing your vehicle to the technicians at Convoy Auto Repair for an inspection. This way, you and your loved one won’t be caught by an unexpected surprises along the way. It is also doesn’t hurt to show your trusty sidekick, your car, a little TLC this holiday.
