Beyond the Bay Family & Pets
Most visitors who come to San Francisco want to see the Golden Gate Bridge, the cable cars, Fisherman’s Wharf and Alcatraz Island, but another island in the San Francisco Bay is on par with all of the top attractions. Angel Island sits just a 30-minute ferry ride from Fisherman’s Wharf, a California State Park rich in history, offering some of the most spectacular views in the entire region.
Head South a few hundred miles to explore some gems along California’s central coast. Explore the Hearst Family Cattle Ranch in San Simeon, and the tiny towns of Harmony, Cayucos and Cambria, along with plenty of great tips for lodging and activities.
Just a quick drive from the Bay Area, Carmel-by-the-Sea is a world-famous artist’s enclave. Home to celebrities, aging hippies, and some of the most breath-taking views along the Pacific, this charming and romantic village makes for the perfect weekend getaway.
Step back into gold rush times to discover a wonderful Bay Area getaway destination. Explore ghost towns, charming inns, and a working gold stamp mill as we explore historic and rural Mariposa County, gateway to Yosemite.
You don’t have to head North to enjoy wine country. Visit California’s fastest growing, and somewhat undiscovered wine region, gorgeous Paso Robles.
