Travel to Northern California Napa Valley
Just north of San Francisco in Northern California is Napa Valley
, the most famous wine country in California. Full of beautiful vineyards and wineries open for wine tasting, it is a relaxing way to spend the day. At the northern end of the valley is the charming town of Calistoga California. Enjoy a mudbath, massage or other spa treatment in one of the many local spas in town. (Photo credit Melissa Dixon).

San Francisco Travel in Northern California
I love San Francisco
, the most beautiful city in the world. Shown here is the famous Golden Gate Bridge (photo credit Cathy Snider). If you visit Northern California, a trip to San Francisco, or "The City" as it is called by the locals, is a must. It is a warm and beautiful city in the winter, but in the summer be warned - the fog may be scenic over the bridge but "The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco".
