Weekend Trips in San Francisco

1. Silicon Valley, San Francisco

Stanford University

Bring your tech-loving friends to the software mecca 📱. Home of companies like Google, Apple 🍎, and Facebook. Believe it or not, it's not just tech. There are also plenty of restaurants, museums, and old California downtowns to visit.

2. Napa Valley, San Francisco

Napa Valley

Home to more than two hundred wineries 🍇 and a dining scene to match, Napa is a wine lover's dream. Doable in a day trip but you probably want to try and spend a long weekend if at all possible 🍷.

3. Santa Cruz, San Francisco

Santa Cruz Redwoods

Down the coast from San Francisco along Highway 1, Santa Cruz is a funky little surf town. Check out the boardwalk and go for a hike in the surrounding Redwood forests if you have time. Perfect for a day trip.

4. Carmel By The Sea, San Francisco

Carmel Coastline

When people talk about "California wild" they usually are referring to the dramatic ocean views and rocky coastline starting in Carmel and stretching south along Highway 1 through Big Sur. Breathtaking is an understatement.

5. Sausalito, San Francisco


Small town north of SF where the Richardson Bay houseboat enclaves reside. Take the Golden Gate Bridge over for plenty of great restaurants and marinas as well as hiking trails with views right next to the water.
