The perfect playlist. Car windows down and a pouch of beef jerky in the cupholder. On your next day off, check out any of these destinations close by Centennial’s master-planned community in Menifee.

Laguna Beach
Along with 30 beaches for scuba diving, surfing and snorkeling, there’s a rich art scene along this coastal town. From the festivals to First Thursday Art Walks, you can enjoy strolling along the beach while being inspired at every corner. During low tide, explore the tide pools at Treasure and Goff Islands to see barnacles, urchins, shell deposits and other natural wonders.

Disneyland
Well, what are you going to do now? Go to Disneyland, of course! Check out some of the newest park additions, like Pixar Pier at California Adventure, along with Splash Mountain, Haunted Mansion and other all-time classics. Plus, you can see the new fireworks show on the park’s Main Street called “Together Forever” featuring scenes from Pixar films.

Palm Springs
Ready for the ultimate spa day? Treat yourself to a day spa package from The Spring Resort. Come before your treatment to soak in the sparkling mineral pools or relax in the Finnish sauna. Then dine atop 4 Saints’ rooftop bar and restaurant while taking in the surrounding San Jacinto Mountains. Their eclectic menu designed by Chef Stephen Wambach, formerly of the Four Seasons in Chicago, includes a Baja kampachi with a smoky infusion from flaming pieces of wild juniper sourced weekly from Joshua Tree.

Joshua Tree
For many, it’s a pilgrimage, but for those fully embracing modern, heartfelt living at Centennial, Joshua Tree is just a brief drive away. Marveling at the giant rock formations strewn across the desert floors with a purple-tinged light cast over them, you can’t help but ponder the history before you. And after gazing into the dark sky nights, think about the infinite possibilities around you.

Many of these wonderful new possibilities can unfold with your next chapter at Centennial.
