Pick Your Northern California Getaway
If it’s “scenic,” “breathtaking,” “awe-inspiring,” or “jaw-dropping,” it must be Northern California.
Plan a visit to this one-of-a-kind region, and you’ll see why those of us who are lucky enough to live and play here regard Northern California as the Golden State’s “cooler half.”
From cosmopolitan San Francisco to the rugged, snow-capped peaks of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, from the esteemed wineries of the Napa Valley to the glacially carved domes of Yosemite National Park, it’s all right here. Dozens of iconic natural and man-made wonders — all located within an easy drive from one another – define one of the most geographically and culturally diverse regions on the planet.
Best of all, you can pace your Northern California escape as fast or as slow as you want to. In the span of a weekend, you could hit world-class ski slopes with knock-your-socks-off views of Lake Tahoe, ride a bike on miles of trails along the American River, and spend the night at a romantic bed and breakfast on the coast –- or wherever your whim leads you.
Living in Northern California, we love to unwind and explore in our own backyard. Our goal is to share our favorite vacation hot spots with you as though we’re talking to a good friend. Using our personal Northern California experiences, combined with our background in travel writing for local publications, we’re able to provide you with “insider” information you won’t find anywhere else.
Stay tuned as we pack this Northern California site full of information, and keep in mind that we’re always striving to stay current. So expect things to change often!
Oh, and do remember to wrestle your breath back from the giant sequoias and pick up your jaw from the scenic shoreline — or wherever your awe happens to be inspired.
