Half Moon Bay, CA - stay there or go to Napa Valley?

Jump to last reply

Whoops, accidentally posted this in travel tips instead of US so I'm reposting.

My husband has a conference to attend in Half Moon Bay at the end of October, so he's asked if I want to come with him and extend the trip to a long weekend break. His conference is finished Wed, so I'd join him that day and then we'd fly home at some point Sunday. In an ideal world we'd have more time, but since we have a toddler at home we wouldn't be able to get someone to babysit for that long (frankly Wed-Sun is pushing it!)

Since neither of us have been to wine country we thought we'd rent a car and do that, and maybe stop in San Fran for a day, but we're pretty clueless about the area. I've been to SF once years ago, but barely remember it. Initial thoughts: SF Thursday, Fri/Sat Sonoma, Napa or somewhere in that area, fly home Sunday.

With only Thurs, Fri and Sat would you even bother doing the wine country or just stay in Half Moon Bay and maybe do a day trip to San Fran or a winery? If you were to do Fri and Sat in wine country, which town would you choose as a home base? I'm looking up info on the Half Moon Bay tourism site and it looks beautiful but not sure if there's loads to do there.

Thanks in advance!
