CMO Maddie’s Favorite Spots

Le Chamois, France

"This is a little chalet up in the French Alps. It is amazingly beautiful up there in the summertime because th greenery is in bloom and the mountain's peaks are fully visible. I rode my bike here from La Mure on the D526 and it was the most amazing bike ride I have ever done (it's around 45 miles w/ 5,100 ft of climbing). There are lakes and cute little villages along the way. This chalet had yummy tarts and drinks for us half way through the ride."

Verve Coffee Roasters, Santa Cruz

"Apparently great coffee (I don't drink it) BUT the real key drink here is the Bowl of Soul. It is some sort of amazing tea concoction that will blow your mind. Great selection of baked goods and a local vibe. Multiple locations here in Santa Cruz since it started here."

Santhiya Koh Yao Yai Resort & Spa, Thailand

"The most amazing hotel I've ever stayed at. Its literally on its own ISLAND! They have amazing restaurants, a nice beach, nightly entertainment, a fantastic spa, little buggy that transport you around, free yoga, etc. Not to mention, the whole resort is made out of beautiful carved wood! Insane."

Playa Avellana, Costa Rica

"This is my favorite beach of all time! The surf is great, the sand is soft and the beach isn't crowded. There is always an amazing sunset. There is a really good restaurant right not he beach called "Lolas". They have hammocks you can lounge on. You can take a bus from Tamarindo here if you don't have a car."

High Rooftop Lounge, Los Angeles

"We used to hang here on Thursdays at sunset when we lived back in LA. We took our out-of-towners here to give them a real taste of Los Angeles. Located right on the beach on the rooftop of the Hotel Erwin. You have to be 21 to get in. There are blankets that you can ask for. Bathrooms are nice lol. Afterwards, I recommend going to Tocaya Organica next door: excellent cheap n trendy Mexican food."
