 Napa and Sonoma Valley

 

Wine Country

Travel north, and soon the vineyards of Napa and Sonoma Valley will surround you. Tour a winery to learn how wine is made, visit a tasting room or two, and stay for dinner at one of the area’s fine restaurants.  Or, opt for an early morning hot air balloon ride, play a round of golf, spend a day at a spa or take a leisurely drive down miles of quiet country roads.  There is so much to do, you’ll want to return again and again.  

  

Golden Gate Bridge

San Francisco 

Spend a few days in San Francisco, and you might leave your heart there as well.  Take a walk across the Golden Gate Bridge, ride a cable car and visit Alcatraz or Angel Island.  See a museum, an art gallery or take in a play. Stroll through the Ferry Building and sample the local cheeses and olive oil.  Or, simply sit along the waterfront and watch the sailboats drift by.

 

Mount Tamalpais and Point Reyes National SeashorePoint Reyes

Marin County offers a wide selection of activities, right outside your door.  If you love to hike, head to Point Reyes National Seashore for miles of wooded trails and ocean beaches.  Or, take a drive up to Mount Tamalpais and enjoy its stellar views.  If you enjoy strolling through quaint downtowns, Sausalito and Tiburon are filled with unique bayside shops.  If auto racing is your passion, Infineon Raceway is popular with many of our guests.

 

Where to go locally: Marin Headlands

Marin Headlands

The Marin Headlands form the southern tip of Marin. If you are looking to take a picture of San Francisco, there is no better spot. Take the last exit before the Golden Gate Bridge; it is marked Sausalito number 442. Take a left on to Alexander Ave. then a right onto Conzelman Rd.

Attractions:

Kirby Cove:

Kirby Cove is a beach slightly west of the Golden Gate Bridge. To get to Kriby Cove, take the Kirby Cove Road off of Conzelman Rd. As seen in the picture, you will have a view looking underneath the bridge toward San Francisco. Also at this location are two First World War Coastal Batteries.

 

 

 

Hawk Hill:

Hawk Hill presents the premier view of San Francisco. If the shot is taken correctly you will get the Golden Gate Bridge in the foreground, Alcatraz Island in the north and Downtown San Francisco in the south.

As the name suggests, Hawk Hill is frequented migratory raptors. From September to October up to eight hundred Birds of Prey can be seen flying over Hawk Hill. Also on Hawk Hill, one can explore a series of Second World War Coastal Batteries.
