I'm not sure which destinations Relache published, but here's my take:
2. Palm Springs
3. Santa Barbara
You'll notice there aren't any big cities on my top list, because I feel that it takes longer than a weekend to properly tour LA, San Diego, and San Francisco. However, the above you could probably tour in a weekend and have plenty of time leftover.
