Looking For Something New Around The Bay Area!

Jump to last reply

Hello everyone! Me and my wife are avid Californian travelers. We live in the East Bay Area. What I'm actually looking for is advice for "little known things" to do in and around the Bay Area that you'd like to share.

Two different types of things I'm looking for, the first is simply day trips, places within 2 hours or so. Good food, cool spots to just hang out, etc.

The second would be over night (1-2) little getaways...I wouldn't mind driving a bit further, but no more than 3-4 hours.

I'll share some of our favorites here, as well...

Napa, of course, is amazing. Big Sur is a great place to go. We often times stay in Carmel and take a drive down 1 just for the heck of it. Speaking of Carmel, more than once we've drove there just for dinner, Dametra cafe is an amazing place to eat! Of course there is Half Moon Bay for times where we just wanted a quick beach trip (went last weekend!).

I'll stop there for now, but might be kind of fun to "trade" cool spots around the bay!
