Northern California is unlike anywhere in the nation. Within two hours of the state capital in Sacramento, you could find yourself in pretty much any environment imaginable. Known as “The City of Trees,” Sacramento is a great jumping off point for quite a variation of destination locations. If you want mountains and snow or beaches and city nightlife, Northern California is the spot.
The world-famous Napa Valley may be your best option when it comes to Northern California destinations, as it offers a beautiful scenic setting while being close enough to San Francisco to enjoy the nightlife. A full day of wine tasting followed by an evening of exploring the Bay Area’s finest cityscape makes for one of the most unique destination experiences out there.
