SAMPLE ITINERARY
The following are suggested sites that can be visited en route to your hotel.

DAY 1, Sunday - Arrive in San Francisco, Drive to Wine Country
Welcome to San Francisco! Proceed to the Rental Car Center to pick up your car and begin your vacation in California. Drive north to the rolling golden hills of Napa and Sonoma, birthplace of wine in California, known for fragrant vineyards and landscapes of trellised grapevines. The scenic drive takes you through historic and picturesque towns like the culinary boomtown of Yountville, known for the famed French Laundry Restaurant, and the spa town of Calistoga Hot Springs, home to the legendary Old Faithful Geyser. Stop along the way at prestigious wineries and restaurants before your descent into the wine country with its spectacular views. Arrive at the hotel of your choice. Tonight, we suggest you experience some of the area’s fine cuisine coupled with excellent California wine
Drive Time: 1-2 hours*
Distance: 60 miles*
Overnight: Napa or Sonoma

DAY 2, Monday - Full day in Napa Valley or Sonoma
A full day to enjoy all of the delights of this area. There are so many winery tours and wine tastings to choose from -- and so much to do. Now a food lover’s paradise, the area restaurants have introduced diverse tasting menus in all price ranges. Wander through the streets of Napa, the area’s oldest town, or visit the historic attractions in Sonoma, rich with 19th century buildings. There is time to discover the many boutiques, gift shops, antique stores, galleries and the many seasonal farmers’ markets. The region is also known for its natural beauty with many outdoor activities such as canoeing on the Russian River, hiking along the rural roads, horseback riding, or bicycling along the scenic trails. In the evening, after a world-class dinner, delight in a performance at the Napa Opera House or take in some jazz and enjoy the lively downtown nightlife
Overnight: Napa or Sonoma

DAY 3, Tuesday - Full day in Napa Valley or Sonoma
Enjoy a second day to discover the wine lands of Napa or Sonoma. Be sure to make reservations at the more popular wineries for their tours or tastings and at the most popular restaurants. Consider a Hot Air Balloon ride affording breathtaking panoramic views, ending with a Champagne Brunch, or, visit the 400-acre wildlife sanctuary in an open-air jeep. If you want to turn the driving over to a train conductor then take the Napa Valley Wine Train, which runs a scenic route between Napa and St. Helena on restored railroad cars. In Sonoma, you can explore buildings from California’s Spanish and Mexican past and some wineries have cellars or tasting rooms dating back to the late 1800s. To learn more about Napa winemaking, visit the Rubicon Estate; walk through the old and charming ivy-covered château. Tonight, more wine and restaurant tastings await you
Overnight: Napa or Sonoma

Travel along the scenic coastal route towards Monterey. Stop in the seaside resort of Santa Cruz, with its amusement-filled, old-time beach boardwalk overflowing with fast food seafood restaurants, souvenir shops and Victorian-era homes. Perhaps visit the Santa Cruz Surfing Museum or Natural Bridges State Beach. Before arriving in Monterey, stop to see the Old Mission San Juan Bautista, in a historic park surrounded by 18th and 19th century buildings. Nearby is an adobe home furnished with Spanish-colonial antiques, along with a blacksmith shop, stable and pioneer cabin. Then, drive past wetlands, artichoke and strawberry fields before arriving in stunning Monterey on the Monterey Peninsula with its extraordinary coastline and wind swept beaches piled high with sand dunes.
