Our top roadtrips June through August all include beach breezes, adorable towns and the Cali vibe.

Hearst Castle
Open to the public, this grand and gorgeous estate is now an art museum with tours and dining. Did we mention you'll also see live zebras?

Surf, watch the waves, drink in the town's chill ambience and maybe make your way to the oceanfront Dinosaur Caves park.

Santa Cruz
An hour south of San Fran lies Santa Cruz, a vibrant surf city with a classic boardwalk with an admission-free amusement park.

Carmel by the Sea
Quaint, with rugged ocean vistas, this cottage-covered town feels very "European village" - right down to the cobblestone courtyards.

San Luis Obispo
Central-coast wine-country gets cool in SLO, thanks to the college feel and the massive selection of boutiques, eats and points of interest. A visit to the Madonna Inn (No, not that Madonna - but just as eclectic.) is practically a requirement.

Introducing: Acura Accelerated Service
In a hurry? It's no surprise that in the hustle and bustle of daily life, convenience and time-saving measures score major points with most people. That's why Valencia Acura has introduced Accelerated Service for basic maintenance services during operating hours. No appointment necessary, this 30-minute-or-less service is available on qualifying services, such as oil change, tire rotation, cabin and engine air filter replacements, differential fluids, lightbulb and battery replacements and more. (If you'd like to add a complimentary car wash and vacuum, allow extra time.). Beyond the convenience, specially-trained Acura Accelerated Service Technician Teams fit a long list of well-choreographed tasks and inspections into a surprisingly-short time. And here's another morsel of exciting news... Valencia Acura has lowered prices on basic services to be competitive with quick lube shops. That's right, you get factory-trained technicians using factory parts and products at competitive prices in 30 minutes or less that will keep both your car and your schedule running smoothly.
