@HeliHubby (are you following him on Twitter yet?) and I are packing our bags again!
This time we are off to the West Coast for a little R&R to celebrate Adam turning the BIG 3-0 in San Francisco! Oh who are we kidding? I highly doubt there will be much time for rest and relaxation with the schedule I have planned!
Have you visited the West Coast? We would love to know your favorite spots in San Francisco and Napa areas. We’ve gotten so many tips from friends old and new that we have recently met traveling, but are always looking for more ideas!
Take a look at our itinerary thus far- we’d love to hear your thoughts!
We arrive at SFO late in the evening and plan to make the hour drive North to Napa where we start the first part of our trip.
Our first full day in Napa starts bright and early- can’t miss an opportunity to try some new wine! We begin our day with a drive on CA-29 N to Castello di Amorosa for our first Vineyard Tour and Tasting. From The Castle (@thecastello on twitter) we head over to Sterling Vineyards for a Noon tasting and ride on their ariel gondola. After our tour at Sterling (@sterlingwines on twitter) we’re planning to hop around a few vineyards thru Yountville (we hear its a darling little town with lots of character and shopping) and back down towards the Meritage Resort.

*Were still looking for somewhere for Supper that night. We were not able to get a reservation at The French Laundry. *
The following day we’re heading back to San Francisco for the remainder of our trip. We’ll leave our hotel, head South through Novato and San Rafael toward the Muir Woods stopping at a few vineyards along the way, before finally reaching San Francisco.
Our first full day in San Francisco we’re planning to do all the “Touristy” things: crossing the Golden Gate Bridge to Sausalito, visiting Fisherman’s Wharf for some Clam Chowder in a Bread Bowl, riding a cable car through town, swinging by the “Full House” House (duh!), and driving down Lombard Street.
Do you think we are missing anything? Know of a fun night life spot? Fill us in!
Our final day in the West Coast begins with an 8:30am tour of Alcatraz– we’ve heard it is a fantastic tour! After the tour we’re heading to the ballpark to take in a little baseball action and cheer on former Atlanta Brave, Tim Hudson and his San Francisco Giants (@sfgiants on twitter)! Adam and I are looking forward to checking another ballpark off of out list! Once the game ends, we have the entire day to site see (and have NOTHING planned) as we’re taking the Red Eye home.
We can’t wait for our next adventure! Don’t forget to leave a comment and share your favorite spots with us! Let the count down begin!
Hope you’re enjoying your Newly Newlywed or Nearly Newlywed Moments as much as we are!
Adam & Holly
