While there are certainly not a shortage of things to do in San Francisco, the Bay Area as a whole offers many day trip options for visitors and locals alike. One such trip is to the Sonoma Coast just north of the city. Sonoma often sits in the shadows of her bigger sister Napa, however Napa is inland and lacks the coastline. Sonoma wears it well though, boasting some of the most spectacular and under rated coastline in the United States. A drive north up Highjway 1 from San Francisco through Tomales Bay, Bodega Bay, and ultimately up to the Sonoma Coast State Beach is a relaxing and adventurous one that should not be missed.
