1 Romantic Night, on a budget...

I'm desperately looking for ideas! I want to do an overnight anniversary thing but the catch is I'm short on time and money. I'm looking for somewhere close, romantic, affordabe (approx. $150 for a room) and clean. The good news is I'm in LA so I have some good location choices. However, I only want to waste about 2 hrs. on the road. I've looked at Santa Barbara, Big Bear, even as far as Cambria - but I still haven't found that "just right" place.

Any ideas would REALLY help!

Have you considered Solvang, CA? according to Yahoo maps, it is only 2 hours away from L.A. It is a little Danish town nestled in the foothills of the Santa Inez mountains since 1911. There is Danish architecture and windmills everywhere and lots of Danish pastry shops and restaurants. There are women with dresses and aprons and wooden clogs walking about. It's very picturesque and romantic and all the little hotels and motels are good, around $100-150. The days are warm and the evenings are cool. I've been there twice and have really enjoyed it. Why don't you look it up and see if that's what you are looking for?

This post was from 2005. Hope they already celebrated the anniversary. ;)

I'm new, I noticed the date after I submitted the post. It still could be helpful to other people who are looking for the same thing and live in the L.A. area
