My boyfriend and I want to plan a trip to California...very broad I know. I've never been before and want to get the most out of spending a week there. I was leaning towards the Bay area but theres just so much going on there and everywhere else I really don't know where to begin. I'd like to see different towns sample food, visit wine country. We'd like to experience as much as possible without breaking the bank and we wouldn't want to overwhelm ourselves either. Does anyone have suggestions like what in your opinion are the top 3 cities to go to and the best times of the year to go. I feel like if I at least have 2 or 3 areas it would be easier to plan. Thanks in advance for any suggestions anyone can provide.
