LocalGetaways California

Oh the places you’ll go!

– Dr. Seuss

Welcome to LocalGetaways, the only website on the planet that’s dedicated to helping Californians find quick, easy, and accessible getaway trips in their own backyard by offering a whole new way to find and book local travel adventures.

No other destination on the Internet has more to offer those who want to get away, save, and explore.

The team at LocalGetaways is obsessed with making sure you get the best deals at our favorite hotels in California, then we go even further by offering hundreds of fun getaways tips throughout the state, from Redwood National Forest to Death Valley and the most awesome 7-Day California Road Trip of your life.

For those seeking a short, affordable break from the rigors of the work week, there’s now a dedicated website that unlocks all of California’s most treasured deals and destinations.

Think of LocalGetaways.com as your personal travel agency to California.  



There are plenty of sites that talk about savings and reasons to travel, but only LocalGetaways.com delivers exclusive savings tied to exciting and often overlooked adventures that dig beyond the typical locales. Each LocalGetaways deal is vetted by in-house travel experts and then tested to ensure that a LocalGetaways deal is exclusive and packed with extras, perks, and value.  


LocalGetaways.com goes a step further, thanks to the insights and wisdom of Matthew Poole, our LocalGetaways Publisher and author of numerous Frommer’s guides to California. Matthew’s inspiring travel articles and tips are designed to get everyone—families, couples, friends to hit the open road and have their own getaway experiences.


If you haven’t already, be sure to sign up for our weekly California Travel Deals & Tips newsletter to receive the best deals, event listings, and travel tips throughout California.

And we always welcome guest posts, so if you want to play travel writer too, feel free to contact us. We’d love to hear from you.


We’re like the Wonder Twins with our Powers Activated! Except that there are four of us. Wonder Quadruplets?

When your only skillset is eating, sleeping, and criticizing, there aren’t a lot of successful career paths you can take other than running a travel company.

My work day typically goes like this: Matt breaks the site, I fix the site. Matt asks, “Can we add this to the site?” and I say, “Sure. If you want it to suck.” But hey, it’s good to feel needed.

“Leslie, we need a new ad designed by 3:30!” “What time is it now?” “2:45. Is that a problem?” “Um. You’re joking, right?” And yet it’s done, beautifully, on time, every time.

What is LocalGetaways.com?
How does your newsletter work?
What makes you different from all the other travel newsletters?
How do I sign up for the newsletter?
I see a photo of the Getaway Guru… is that a real person?
After I book a deal on a hotel’s website, how do I know it went through correctly?
If I book a package deal that includes dinner, massage, and golf, who sets up the restaurant spa, and tee-off reservation times?
What if I want to stay at a hotel that’s offering a package deal but I don’t want the deal, just a room reservation?
Where else besides California does LocalGetaways offer such great deals?
I noticed the “Accredited by IATAN” logo on your website. What’s that about?
