Making sure we get some time to unwind and slow down in our daily lives is a must for a healthy lifestyle. Sometimes planning a big trip out of town might take too much time and effort to plan out. This is when we prefer doing a nice staycation somewhere in the Bay Area instead of dealing with traffic and rushing to and from a further location. One perfect spot for a staycation is Four Seasons Palo Alto. They are centrally located and offer anything and everything you need to get that much needed R&R.
Pleasanton, Livermore, Dublin, and Danville make up what is known as Tri Valley. It’s an excellent getaway for food and wine lovers without breaking the bank.
Healdsburg is a wonderful Bay Area wine weekend getaway. It’s not too far, so even coming for a day trip is very doable. While we came for the wine, we also discovered all of the other great agriculture practices happening in the area. It’s truly a farming community. There are also a vast variety of food and drink options ranging from quick and casual, to a slow and relaxing meal.
We had a great weekend away with friends and can’t wait to return to see more of what this great town has to offer! Below is a list of what we experienced on our trip. Let us know your Healdsburg favorites in the comments below.
We love to visit Half Moon Bay when it heats up in the South Bay. You can’t beat the cool ocean breeze and the coastline is just gorgeous. The fresh seafood is also a big plus. With many classic seafood and chowder stops that draw a big crowd, this time we tried out some new spots (for us) that we are excited to share with you. We also crossed a big one off of our bucket list…a stay at the Ritz Carlton Half Moon Bay! Below is an overview of our weekend getaway. Feel free to share your own favorite Half Moon Bay spots in the comments below.
