San Rafael is the pretty central business district of Marin, and a lot more too. It has great restaurants, shops, and theaters. It boasts Terrapin Crossroads is a music venue owned by Phil Lesh, and The Marin Civic hosts a variety of performances. Whatever you need you can most likely accomplish it in San Rafael. It is surrounded by beauty, ...

Moss Landing is a tiny town north of Monterey on Hwy 1. If you travel up 1 instead of turning right toward 101, you'll go by Moss Landing. I like stopping here for lunch and to look at the otter rafts that take refuge in Elkhorn Slough.

A little foggy for my taste, but otherwise a charming coastal community with first-rate access to some of the most breathtaking dive sites in the Monterey Bay. It can feel like middle America with all its old Victorian's, but this spot is an oceanographer's Mecca and home to Stanford's Hopkins Marine Station. I could imagine growing old along this stretch ...

One of the world's most beautiful cities combined with some of the brightest minds and the friendliest locals you will find anywhere!

Add in a fantastic art scene, sun-kissed mountains, ...

Just like paradise! Laguna Beach is quite possibly the closest thing to Hawaii in California. The beaches are gorgeous and the area is full of great restaurants and shops.

No matter how many times I drive down into the Mojave Desert, I never get tired of the scenery of Death Valley. Snow-topped mountains (even in summer), enormous valleys with Kodachrome-colored rocks, blindingly white salt flats where prehistoric lakes once rippled, and Old West ghost towns.

Funky little town in the Mojave Desert, just on the outskirts of the famed Joshua Tree National Park. One of the main park entrances is located through here, as well as a Visitor's Center offering a wealth of information for explorers heading in. It can be a great place to overnight if you're not up for desert camping, as well ...

On the Tioga Road through Yosemite's high country, which can feel like driving on the rooftop of the world, Tuloumne Meadows is the hub of all the action in summertime. Boardwalk paths lead through gorgeous alpine meadows where wildflowers burst into bloom, usually from late June through early August. Check if there are any music or spoken-word events happening at ...

The ocean is ...

This is my absolute favorite fruit stand on the 5! I have such an addiction to roadside fruit stands, and this one consistently delivers ripe, delicious, and incredibly photogenic fruit!

Mammoth Lakes is a great escape any time of the year. It offers some of California's best skiing in winter and best hiking in summer. There are so many things you can do there from soak in natural hot springs, cross country ski, downhill ski, snowboard, mountain bike, hike, go off-loading, and much more. It is beautiful at all different ...

Home to Stanford University, a stunning campus with great sports facilities; very clean, full of greenery and surrounded by some lovely trails. There is a lovely shopping mall in the area as well. Overall, a wealthy area with a lot of student life and businesses to support that lifestyle. Some background, Stanford is a private research university in Stanford, CA ...

Dominated by the CSU campus, Arcata is a classic liberal, hippie, pot-smoking and tarot card-reading California small town. Start at the town square, where a Saturday farmers market brings in huge crowds, then amble around checking out the new-age and boutique shops, bars and cafes. Don't miss stargazing from a redwood hot tub at Caffe Mokka & Finish Country Saunas ...

Very cute with a tiny little downtown area. Beautiful view of the bay and a surprisingly large number of restaurants, including a pizza joint, Mexican, and California cuisine.

While this neighborhood has evolved quite a bit over the years, it still retains its 60s era charm, with colorful independent bookstores/music shops and cafes and the smell of pot drifting through the street. It's a short walk from Golden Gate Park, another must-see spot for a visit to SF.
