Top 5 weekend getaway in Bay Area.

5 Sep

A fellow blogger asked me what my recommendation of weekend getaways in the Bay Area are, so thought I would write a blog about it.

The Bay Area is full of great places to visit – wine country, lakes, ski areas, national parks, beaches and so much more.

Below are my top 5 weekend getaways. In no particular order:

1. Yosemite– 3.5 hour drive from the Bay Area. A stunning National Park, great in summer and winter. The park is full of hikes and waterfalls.



2. Napa Valley-1.5 hours from the Bay Area. beautiful wine country. Some of my favorite wineries are Mumm, Domain Chandon, Sterling and Vi Sattui


3. San Luis Obispo– 4 hours from the Bay Area. Lovely beach destination with great attraction such as Hearst Castle. Fantastic food and the best crab I have ever tasted.


4. Lake Tahoe– 3.5 hours from the Bay Area. Great in summer and winter. The lake in summer time is great for kayaking and water sports. Winter time Tahoe turns into a winter paradise.


5. Santa Cruz– 1.5 hours from the Bay Area. Fantastic beach destination with a fun boardwalk full of amusement park attractions. Other activities include cruises and the mystery spot.


So go out and discover The Bay Area. There is so much on offer, no matter what your interest are there is something for everyone.
