“My wife and I have taken frequent road trips in order to ensure our sanity during this tumultuous time,” said actor Gregg Daniel (“True Blood,” “Insecure,” “For Life”). “In all our trips, we wore masks and maintained social distancing. There are several places heading due north we love visiting, especially the coastal communities – Ventura, Ojai, Summerland, Montecito and Santa Barbara. I find it remarkable that not more than 90 miles from Los Angeles (where we reside), you can find yourself in an entirely different atmosphere.” Daniel is one of the stars of “7th and Union,” the boxing film that recently premiered at the Los Angeles Latino International Film Festival.

“I was actually planning to live in Paris for a month, something that I’ve always wanted to do as a sort of ‘Eat Pray Love’ era for myself, before settling down with a family,” said Megan Batoon, one of the three hosts of the new Netflix travel series, “The World's Most Amazing Vacation Rentals.” “I saw a notification pop up on my phone as I was doing the dishes the other day and just laughed as I loaded the dishwasher and fell asleep in my bed, which was not in France.” Based out of Los Angeles, the 30-year-old social media influencer shares her travels on Twitter (https://twitter.com/meganbatoon), Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/MeganBatoonFP/) and Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/meganbatoon/).

From January through October of every year, tennis star Sloane Stephens is in a different city competing. Based out of Florida, she visits her mother in Los Angeles as often as she can — and also checks in on the Sloane Stephens Foundation, which utilizes education and tennis to uplift vulnerable children. “I honestly don’t remember where exactly (my first tennis tournament was), but I do remember that I had a lot of fun and met friends that I grew close to and continued to see at tournaments,” Sloane said from Paris, where she was competing in the French Open. “That positive first experience with tennis is why I stuck with it. That is the type of environment we create with the kids at the Sloane Stephens Foundation. We give you all the tools to take tennis as far as you want, but the most important thing is that you are finding a pathway to be healthy, happy and have a positive experience.” Stephens — who serves on the WTA Players’ Council — stays in touch with fans on Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/sloanestephens/), Twitter (https://twitter.com/SloaneStephens) and Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/Sloaneposts).

Coastal Oaxaca beach towns draw an entirely different crowd than you’ll find in Cancun, Puerto Vallarta and Acapulco. Puerto Escondido anchors this region, and you’ll pay far less here than in the more popular Mexico beach destinations.
