HotelTonight – The Sea Ranch, CA Hotels Near You

When you drive as part of your job, as I do for my work as a traveling salesperson, the roads that you're on constantly can become a bit drab after a while. Therefore, I like to mix things up from time to time to give myself the opportunity to recharge, while seeing some new things. One of the many great things about driving in California quite a bit is that when I decide to veer off the beaten path, I have a lot of gorgeous driving options at my disposal depending on where I am at the time. Recently, I needed to drive north from the Bay Area into Oregon, and I decided to drive up the Coast Highway, which is only one of the most scenic drives in the world. As I was doing so, I caught another break that I didn't see coming. The phone rang, and it was my home office telling me my meetings that day had been canceled. I had 24 hours to explore what I wanted to see, and I chose the community of the Sea Ranch. I wasn't worried about finding a Sea Ranch, CA hotel room, either, as my HotelTonight app would handle it.

The Town

The Sea Ranch is a planned community, and it was obvious from the first second I took a look at it that it had been planned quite nicely. Only around 1,300 people live there full-time, but its location and its beauty attract a lot of visitors. I parked my car and walked around the town for a while, and I noticed that everyone there was happy and friendly. People spoke to each other with a comfortable familiarity that was nice to see, and everyone made sure to say hello to me.

The Hiking

The Sea Ranch is a seaside community, and I love the sea, specifically the Pacific Ocean in this case. I also love to hike and noticed a trail that takes you right down to the shore. I jumped on it and lost myself in the beauty. The blue water was on one side of me, the hills that lead to the shore were on the other, and I was surrounded by rock formations and tall grass. I spent a couple of hours walking around and taking a lot of photos, as I couldn't believe what I was experiencing.

The Dining

One of the people I spoke to in town highly recommended a restaurant right on the shore, so that's where I went for dinner. He was right, as the views were unbelievable. I had the oysters to start, and they actually had a salty, seawater taste to them because they were so fresh. My entrée was the sea bass, which was baked and served on a bed of local produce. It was delicious in every way, and it all went very well with a nice glass of local wine.
