SanFran/Napa, where else?

Hello,

I am planning on spending a week in the beginning of July split between San Fran and Napa. Is there anywhere else I should keep in mind? I am looking for anything scenic, fun, etc. I am just curious before I start booking places to stay. It would be a 1-2 day getaway outside of the two I already plan on spending time in.

Thanks :)

Hi- There are some excellent wineries and great places in Sonoma County as well- right next to Napa. Sonoma wineries are not as touristy. If you are inclined- you can drive to Bodega bay. If you are in SF- it will be an hour and a half north of that and if you are in Napa- somewhere about the same westwards. Also- just north of SF in MArin county there are two little towns called Sausalito and Tiburon. Very quaint and beautiful. You probably already have them in your itinerary. I live in the South Bay so I am a big fan of Monterey/ Carmel- but that is if you are inclined to drive almost 3 hours south.

Hello,

Actually, I am kind of looking to drive a bit, I am in NYC, so being in a car will actually be a great change :) Can you recommend anything in particular in to do or see in Monterey/Carmel. What do out of towners typically do? I would really appreciate any feedback or ideas. It will be my first time in this part of Cali so I would like to see and do as much as I can!

If you are talking about one night, then the Marin or Sonoma Coast would be ideal. With two nights, you could look at Monterey or Mendocino. The drive north from San Francisco along Hwy 1 to Mendocino is very beautiful and if it's foggy, you can always take the inland route through the Anderson Valley along Hwy 128. The Anderson Valley has it's own wine country and also has some nice redwood parks.

Pretty close by is Point Reyes and 3 very good oyster farms with picnic tables. Might be an option!
