Weekend Inspiration: Spring Break

April 3, 2015 by Ariana | 0 Comments

Most schools are out for spring break this week or next, so we’ve been seeing a lot of kids (and tourists) running around town.  For those of us who don’t get as many vacation days as we did as kids, why not take a day trip?  One thing we love about SF is that you can drive in almost any direction and in a short time, feel like you are in a completely different place.  Check out our suggestions for where to go to escape in two hours or less:


  • Take a hike at Muir Woods, then have a picnic lunch on Stinson Beach
  • Book a spa treatment at the Sonoma Mission Inn, then continue the relaxation with wine tasting and dinner before heading back across the Golden Gate Bridge
  • Hop the ferry with your bike to Angel Island for a beautiful ride with the best views
  • Drive down Hwy 1 and stop at Moss Beach to observe sea life, then head to Sam’s Chowder House for oceanfront clam chowder
  • Willing to drive a little farther?  Head down to Carmel-by-the-Sea and enjoy a walk on the beach, charming restaurants and shops.

Whether you decide to stay in town or venture out, have a great (Easter) weekend!
