A day spent on Angel Island is a day well spent. This one of the most historically interesting parks in the State of California, as well as offering (arguably) some of the best views available in any metropolitan area anywhere in the world.
Now that there are no toll collectors, it is even faster to cross the Golden Gate and escape the fog of the city. Hop in your car and get ready to explore the best that the North Bay has to offer.
Head north over the Golden Gate Bridge and it’s no secret that in about an hour you’ll be in Wine Country. But did you know, as you head up Highway 101 through the green, grassy hillsides of Marin and Sonoma County, that you’re in cheese country?
Opera lovers, this is your chance to see the acclaimed Metropolitan Opera close to home. CinéArts in Sausalito is showing the Opera Francesca da Rimini in a live broadcast. Be prepared for star-crossed love, betrayal, death and doom–all set to the sweeping music. The Opera starts at 9 am on Saturday. Buy tickets here @ 101 Caledonia St., Sausalito
Today’s ride takes us off the pavement and onto the dirt to China Camp State Park in Marin County, located along the Southwestern edge of San Pablo Bay. The park and its extensive trail system offer sweeping views to the North across the water to nearby Mt. Burdell and the shores of Sonoma County and on a clear day, Mt. Saint Helena can be seen rising high above Napa. We’ll ride one of the sweetest four miles of single track the North Bay has to offer: The Shoreline Trail.
