Calabasas, California, is known as a hometown for the rich and famous, with exclusive gated communities, high-end stores, and elegant restaurants. The lesser-known side of Calabasas, though, has its roots in the Old West, when pumpkin patches and horse ranches covered its landscape. The remaining relics of this era, along with proximity to the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area and convenient transport links to the wider Los Angeles area, make hotels in Calabasas a fine choice.
