Spend 3, 5, or 7 days exploring the San Francisco Bay area before the thick summer fog descends! Depending on where you want our wanderings to take you, we might:

  • explore one (or a few) of the city’s distinct neighborhoods on a walking tour,
  • peruse locally-grown organic produce at a farmers’ market,
  • cook a feast under the guidance of an experienced chef,
  • browse the art collections of the de Young Museum and the Legion of Honor,
  • sip freshly-roasted coffee, hand-picked premium tea, or perfectly-balanced cocktails in the Mission District,
  • soak in the beauty of the Pacific on a day hike along the coast,
  • marvel at the ancient trees of Muir Woods,
  • meander through the Botanic Gardens and/or ride bikes (or segways) in Golden Gate Park,
  • tour Alcatraz — presently home to a special exhibition of dissident artist Ai Weiwei’s site-specific installations,
  • visit the historic light house in Point Reyes,
  • sample unique wines at any number of local vineyards in Sonoma and/or Napa,
  • tour a craft brewery or distillery, or an area farm,
  • venture over the Sierra to Yosemite National Park,
  • relax in a unique “cedar enzyme bath” at a highly-acclaimed day spa in a tiny hippy hamlet north of the city,
  • ride bikes on picturesque Highway 1, around the Bolinas lagoon,
  • take a surf lesson at Ocean Beach,
  • hop the ferry to Angel Island or take a day cruise on the Bay,
  • attend a reading at the famed City Lights Bookstore,

...or seek out and make happen whatever else you feel inclined to do!
