We love the city, but let's face it, we love leaving it even more. Hence Get Out of Dodge, which periodically hooks you up with the best weekend getaways just a short skip away. Get going...

It's true you've been called a renaissance man.
 
So when you're planning a holiday this month (you know, to escape the holidays), you might be interested in a hint of old Europe by way of the classic—by which we mean completely new—Resort at Pelican Hill. Reservations are now being accepted for opening night, just before Thanksgiving.
 
You'll find the new getaway near Newport Beach, though all the columns and limestone will probably make you feel a bit further east. And that's even before you find your way to the circular Coliseum Pool, covered in more than a million hand-cut glass mosaic tiles and surrounded by tiers of viewing decks. But though the setup might remind you of some ancient savage traditions, you won't be watching a bull get gored—you'll be in your cabana, having some afternoon wine and a pizza. (Close enough.)

Once it's time to get back to your villa, or to get to one of the other four restaurants on the premises, it's likely you'll find yourself with a pretty striking view of the ocean or one of the two master 18-holers.
 
No bull.
