Longboarding: Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows, Santa Monica, California
The historic Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows, perched under the iconic Miramar Moreton Bay fig tree and across the street from Santa Monica’s stretch of sunny Pacific-kissed sand, has teamed up with French swimwear label Vilebrequin to offer custom-made longboard skateboards in each of its 32 secluded garden bungalows. To celebrate the partnership, the hotel has added a new longboard concierge, who will bring guests to the Santa Monica Pier for one-hour lessons (reservations required). Rooms start at $420; 101 Wilshire Blvd.; 310-576-7777; fairmont.com.
