A Hidden Bit of Paradise
by Tara Becker

Being from California, I often go back to visit. And, when I go, I make my home in a hidden bit of paradise.

Only minutes north of LAX, in the midst of the concrete jungle lies the Ballona Wetlands. The Ballona Wetlands are a federal preserved. Right next to this little piece of heaven is a quaint, beautiful bed and breakfast, The Inn at Playa Del Rey.

My husband and I found this haven while actually still living in Southern California. We started by going to celebrate our anniversary. A place to go and escape reality right in our own backyard. Now that we are no longer live in the area, itapostrophes become a ritual each time we visit.

The Inn at Playa Del Rey has all the comforts of home and a hotel. Frombreakfast souffles and afternoon tea or California wines served for happy hour to private sunbathing gardens, you feel completely relaxed and pampered. And if you must stay connected, they also have wireless internet and a computer on the main floor.

My husband especially likes the home-made cookies that await our arrival . I, myself, like the personal note that is left from the staff. Liz and the gang make you feel completely at home! More importantly, they make you feel appreciated for staying. What a concept! They know you can stay anywhere and have chosen to stay with them.

There is never a shortage of things to do in the greater Los Angeles area. Go to the beach. Ride the bike path. Visit the museums.What I love is the opportunity to "get off the planet" and just "be". Donapostrophet forget the bird watching on your private balcony overlooking the wetlands.

So, onyour next trip to LA you donapostrophet have to do the urban thing. Escape to paradise. Be sure to tell Liz I say "hi".
