Today I’m packed and ready to kick off a 21-day tour of California on which I fully expect to unearth a bevy of new favorite  luxury hotels, restaurants and destinations in the Golden State. From Palm Springs, San Diego and Laguna Beach to San Francisco, Lake Arrowhead and Carmel-by-the-Sea, I will be chronicling my trip right here on my LivingWells Blog at and also sharing blog posts on LockerDome, where I invite you to follow along and  chime in by voting in the polls that will help me choose the activities on my itinerary along the way.
