It’s a quintessential Bay Area weekend with not a cloud in sight. I’m cruising along Highway 29 with the windows rolled down, and the view to either side of me is filled with flourishing fields in full bloom, rolling green hills, and vineyards full of grapes getting ready for the upcoming fall harvest.
A couple glasses of fruity Pinot Noir and a cheese pairing class later and I’m on the road again, headed for the iconic Pacific Coast Highway. Along the way, I stop for an hour or two at a few of the towns that dot the coast. Fresh Californian seafood is aplenty, as are the inspiring views that have drawn and inspired musicians, writers, and artists for decades.
From hopping aboard a wine train in Napa to surfing infamous 30-foot waves in Half-Moon Bay, there’s no shortage in variety with these six weekend getaways in the Bay Area.
