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.
