Ideas for Northern California trip?

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone - we fly in mid-June to San Francisco and have 7 full days to work with. I'm looking for ideas for what towns we need to make sure we don't miss. We'll have a car (for the days we won't be in San Fran)

1. I've been to Monterey/Carmel, but would like to go back to show my husband & daughter the beaches so I would like to include this in the itinerary if possible. Is there anything in between SF and this area that we should see?
2. I've never been north of San Francisco - would love to include Napa. Any other great places that we shouldn't miss?
3. Plan on spending 2 1/2 days in San Francisco - it is pretty pricey to stay in the central area. Can anyone provide tips on safe outerskirts areas where we could stay at a Hilton Garden Inn or similar to save a few bucks?

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you
