Fuel up for a hike at the nearby Armstrong Redwoods reserve at the Big Bottom Market in Guerneville. You'll find snacks, such as cured meats, artisanal pickles, and local cheeses, to enjoy in the picnic area. For something heartier, order the...

62 California 1, Carmel-By-The-Sea, CA 93923, USA
I've been all over the California coast and Point Lobos is my favorite place to hike. We have hiked every trail in this reserve and never tire of this magical place. You can see many animals, such as sea otters, seals, elephant seals,sea lions,...

CA-1, Bodega Bay, CA 94923, USA
Many car commercials have been filmed along this stretch of the iconic California road. The hairpin turns and switchbacks make it a wild ride for some, but the views to the west (the ocean) and the east (Northern California's inimitable green...

Pierce Point Rd, Inverness, CA 94937, USA
If you have a clear day and the fog hasn't quite yet settled in from the ocean, a great hike in the Point Reyes National Seashore is the Tomales Point Trail. Park at the Historic Pierce Point Ranch and then follow the out and back trail 4.7 miles...

Muir Beach, CA, USA
When I posted on Facebook that I was taking a trip to San Francisco, the suggestions started coming in for all the places I must not miss. A design savvy friend and San Francisco expert told me to head about 45 minutes north of San Francisco to...

Wife and I wanted to see the biggest trees in North America. This led us to the northern part of California. We had read about the elusive and secretive Grove of Titans online and hoped to find it! After much research and exploration our efforts...

15500 US-101, Klamath, CA 95548, USA
Yes, there's a hint of the American-road-trip cheese factor, but for a family on the stretch of road from Northern California to Oregon on Highway 101, this stop would be a home run. It's 36 miles south of the Oregon border, amid the miles of...
