We enjoy staying at the InterContinental when visiting San Francisco
Just five years ago, the thought of visiting San Francisco repulsed me. All I knew of visiting the city is that you would only see homeless folks and human feces on the ground and maybe an occasional needle lying on the ground. On a visit in 2017, that was all true. My wife and I witnessed it and were disgusted by it.Read full story
Nick’s Cove in Tomales Bay as a Lot to Offer
I feel that the Tomales Bay region along the eclectic Highway 1 north of San Francisco is an under appreciated region of Northern California. Located approximately 30 miles north of San Francisco, Tomales Bay is an outdoor adventurist dream. There is an abundance of wildlife, trails, fishing, and kayaking opportunities. The bay is sheltered from the Pacific Ocean keeping the waters calm most of the time, although you do want to stay away from the mouth of the bay, known as the “sand bar” as it can be treacherous. Near by also is the Point Reyes National Seashore with the likes of Pt. Reyes North Beach, Drakes Beach and Limantour Beach, all spectacular and remote beaches.Read full story
Family friendly camping at Inn Town Campground in Nevada County
We are not campers. We don’t own an RV or a 5th wheel. We prefer more of a, let's just say, “luxurious stay,” however, “glamping” has caught our attention recently. Glamping is where you stay, typically in a tent made of canvas, that provides some of the luxuries of a hotel room. You can expect a full, queen, or king size bed. There will be chairs and a small refrigerator likely as well as some heating or cooling accommodations.Read full story
