Weekend Getaways in San Francisco Hotels

When visiting San Francisco, you’ll feel an urge to explore the outdoors and enjoy the delectable Asia-Pacific and Hispanic cuisines. The cultural explosion you’ll feel is simply amazing. It’s no wonder it’s a traveler’s paradise. Let us explore the popular haunts of the city that’s dedicated to St. Francis of Assisi, while you stay in comfortable San Francisco hotels.


Sea Ranch

Drive just 100 miles south of San Francisco and you’ll arrive at Sea Ranch. It offers visitors a chance to hike through the Redwoods or walk along a 10-mile stretch of bluff trails with the Pacific Ocean breaking below. You may just spot a few sea lions or whales from up above if you’re lucky. If you have the time, you should venture out onto a kayaking or fishing trip in the pristine waters of the Pacific Ocean.

The magnificent architecture of the Sonoma County (which has inspired East coast contractors like Essex County roofing contractors), only adds to the landscape. Explore this quaint town to experience the bygone era when lamps lit the streets. The unpainted wood and unsuspended eaves allow the buildings to beautifully merge with the landscape. You would be surprised to know that there is no street light to prevent “light pollution” and the dazzling views of the night sky fills your senses. Do not forget to taste the wine at Bodega Bay. It is a 1-hour drive away from Sea Ranch, but it’s well worth it.

 Adventurous Weekend

People who seek aqua adventure can begin their weekend in Monterey at the Monterey Bay Aquarium followed by a stroll on the Fisherman’s Wharf and Cannery Row. For literary enthusiasts, a visit to the National Steinbeck Center will satiate their intellectual hunger.

You can head to the lovely beach town of Carmel-by-the-Sea to explore a 17-Mile Drive, famous for inspiring ocean views that runs from Pacific Grove to Pebble Beach. For wine-tasting, two venues that emerge on the trail are Point Lobos State Reserve and Borromeo de Carmelo Mission. This region also conducts multiple festivals including the Carmel Bach Festival that celebrates classical composer Bach, and the Carmel Art & Film Festival that plays award-winning independent films.

Before you retire to your San Francisco hotel, take a walk at Asilomar State Beach and enjoy the beauty of its vast coastline and rocky coves.

Surf at Santa Cruz

Do you enjoy surfing? Simply drive down 70 miles from San Francisco to Santa Cruz and surf at the Seabright State Beach! Hit the Beach Boardwalk to enjoy the carnival rides. For vintage shopping head to Pacific Avenue.

Before you retire for the evening, stop at the notorious Mystery Spot- a woody enclave that boasts optical illusions- its operators reveal, the laws of gravity and physics do not apply here!

Half Moon Bay is a 35 minutes drive from San Francisco. This quaint coastal town offers brilliant resorts and spas, and horseback riding at Sea Horse Ranch. You can play golf or engage in bird-watching at the golf course overlooking the Pacific Ocean. You can also visit the art galleries to learn the town’s history or shop at the stores to collect memorabilia. Who knows, you may just participate in the annual Mavericks Surf Contest!
