Saying that this is beach weather is probably taking SF’s Indian Summer a bit too far, but we’re actually a big fan of heading to the beach when the weather turns cold and moody. It’s less crowded, equally beautiful, and typically less muddy than other options. Here are some of our favorites:
One of the best parts of living in the Bay Area is its proximity to Pebble Beach, Monterey, and Carmel. These three destinations offer some of the best vistas, beaches, restaurants, and outdoor activities in all of California. A camera is required for this experience.
Where once we Northern Californians felt obligated to drink mostly California wines, our local restaurants have broadened their palettes in the last several years, bringing more global wines to the table. (Marlowe has a Lebanese red blend that's to die for.) But these days, sommeliers are making room for another wine region on their lists: All hail Greece, a country whose wines are overdue for a revival.
Meagan, Robert, and their English bulldog Gibson could not have found a more wonderfully bucolic spot to tie the knot than Sonoma County's Dawn Ranch Lodge.
Stevan Shapona, 59, is one of the last remaining artists from San Francisco's fabled golden age. Born and raised in the Bay Area, Shapona worked alongside his father as a sign painter for decades—touching up the awnings of the St. Francis hotel among other local icons—before pursuing art full time.

We love living in the Bay Area, but we also know the toll that comes with constant noise, lights, and the feeling of being cooped up by civilization. Luckily, we’ve got just the cure. Take 24 hours away from the hustle and bustle of the city to truly disconnect from your normal routine and reconnect with the outdoors. In other words, go on a microadventure.
