BEAUTIFUL PEBBLE BEACH: When lovers of flowery terms trot out the term "legendary" ahead of the words "Pebble Beach," we never flinch. Instead, we nod in hearty agreement, and wish we were at that rather fictionally beautiful spot. But not only does the Carmel-close location own the patent on breathtakingness; it also famously is home to one of the world's most famous golf tournaments.
THE 2011 NATIONAL PRO-AM: You may not be playing in it, but you could be up there, watching the likes of Bill Murray and George Lopez wield putters. The Pebble Beach Resorts have a special offer on, which will include a pair of comped tickets to the course each day you're staying, and shuttle rides there. There will be more frou-frou-ery, this being Pebble Beach, and the resort will reveal all when you call. Tempted? Pebble Beach? Bill Murray? Kind of a perfect week.
DATES: The 2011 Pebble Beach National Pro-Am happens Feb. 7-13.
