If you ever have the chance to make the gorgeous drive from San Fran up into the wine country of the Napa Valley (Napa, Calistoga, St. Helena, Sonoma), you definitely have to do it! I recommend driving up the east side of the area (through Berkley) and back through Sausalito on the west. Highways 12 & 29 can get quite busy during the summer months, but well worth the wait. The wineries and terrain are gorgeous! There are so many great restaurants in the wine country and some outstanding bed & breakfasts as well. Overall, the area makes for an outstanding vacation!

Okay. Old Faithful was more interesting to me than wineries, but that's my taste.
