San Francisco

Since the California Gold Rush on, San Francisco has remained the most iconic Western American city of our time. Its rolling landscape of street cars, bridges, harbor views and vibrant neighborhoods is more than just a snapshot of bay area life-it captures your spirit and invites you into this dynamic society, full of life and possibility. Long a cultural Mecca for intellectuals and visionaries, the city seems in perpetual renaissance from the Beat movement in North Beach to the Haight-Ashbury Summer of Love, the Castro fight for equality and the sustained dot-com boom. From the Chinese New Year to San Francisco Pride, ethnic and cultural diversity are woven together amongst historic landmarks to create a place unlike anywhere in the world.


Oh, Sonoma…. here we will soak up a balanced blend of viticultural and agricultural experiences that will indulge your sense. This storybook wine region, boasting no less than 12 sub-appellations, has warm inviting tasting rooms, premium wineries, picturesque vineyards and charming inns. The Valley’s approachability is outshined only by their not-to-be-missed diversions.  With choices that include ambling between urbane tasting rooms, a slow drive from vineyard to vineyard, or an overnight stay in a romantic wine-country inn, it’s hard to decide what beckons us the most.

Yosemite National Park

From Half Dome to Glacier Point, Yosemite National Park stands above in beyond in beauty. First protected in 1864, the park is best known for its waterfalls, deep valleys, grand meadows, giant sequoias and vast wilderness. Every turn of its scenic roads will leave you in awe; every granite monolith will make your jaw drop. Learn the stories of those who walked Yosemite’s trails, hike some its iconic pathways, and enjoy the serenity and nature of one of the last great wildernesses.
