Los-Alamos is a small, historical town located in south central California, off Highway 101 between Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo. This little community of 1,000 that was once a stagecoach stop, today has two beautiful Victorian hotels, restaurants, antiques shops and a winery. Los Alamos is Spanish for "the Cottonwoods" and was used to describe this town that is set along the Cottonwood lined San Antonio Creek. The Victorian mansion that now operates as a resort hotel has exotic theme rooms, including a 1950s room, Egyptian and Roman rooms, and is a perfect place for a fantasy "escape" weekend retreat. Another fantasy adventure includes the Los Alamos "Stagecoach Murder Mysteries." Once a month, guests are invited to dress in Old West costume and try to figure out "who dunnit" by talking with other partygoers. Winners are announced at the end of the night during dinner. Other special events in Los Alamos include a street festival in September, an annual Halloween Ball and a Civil War Christmas Ball. A nice side trip is to visit the winery located in Los Alamos which is open daily for free wine tasting and also has a picnic area. Los Alamos is definitely the kind of place to come and relax as you take a step back in time.
