Four Seasons Resort The Biltmore Santa Barbara, Channel Drive, Santa Barbara, CA, United States



For the mother that loves to entertain but finds herself attracted more and more to an easy going plan that includes her little ones, Alicia Lund has the answer: picnics. The blogger behind Cheetah is the New Black planned an intimate picnic during a trip with her husband at the Four Seasons The Biltmore Santa Barbara.

Alicia Lund spills all the effortless details that made her family picnic a parent's happy hour heaven. From the appetizers to the vintage glassware to the lounge ware, it's time to embrace picnic season.

21c Museum Hotel Bentonville

200 Northwest A Street, Bentonville, AR, United States



Tucked in the Northwest corner of Arkansas, 21c Museum Hotel Bentonville may seem like an unexpected place for a gallery-slash-boutique-hotel. But given its walking proximity to the massive Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, this 104-room property is right at home in the charming and artsy Southern town. For culture fanatics looking for an experience outside the norm, this Bentonville hotel offers it. 

Expect to see quirky touches and elaborate site-specific installations, like A Sudden Gust of Wind, which will make you second-guess if papers are actually flying around your head. And while the lobby and massive exhibition space may be filled with eccentric, in-your-face pieces of art, the spacious rooms are purposely homey with subtle modern touches. Don’t miss the hotel’s restaurant The Hive to try the sophisticated country fare from award-winning executive chef Matthew McClure.

We talked to fashion and lifestyle blogger Ally Noriega about her experience at 21c Museum Hotel Bentonville, which was a short trip from her hometown of Oklahoma City. Take Noriega’s advice for what to do within walking distance from the hotel!
