This route is ideal for wine lovers or those who want to go off the well-beaten track. Start by taking in the sights of San Francisco before heading into wine country where you can sample the best of Sonoma and its once Mexican colonised town--not forgetting to stop off at John Muir Woods to see its giant redwood trees. Go on to enjoy the world-renowned wines of Napa Valley as well as some of the area’s finest cuisine. The lush valley is also great for cycling, trail walking and kayaking on the river. Complete your journey back in San Fran.
