If the goal was a September wedding with a sweet rustic vibe, then this gorgeous couple nailed it.
When the leaves change hues, it's time to dust off your pie recipes and find an idyllic, cozy town for autumnal inspiration. We suggest you put on your boots and pack your Pendleton blanket for Sebastopol, where the peaceful back roads are dotted with farm stands, handpainted signs for pancake breakfasts, and craggy apples trees bursting with fruit.
It’s a mellow Friday afternoon in the rugged hills of Oakland. Water trickles in the koi pond on a tree-shaded deck, and a Wheaten terrier chills at our feet. Could this day get any better? Well, there are also six grams of organic cannabis, fresh from a farm in the Emerald Triangle, en route via courier to our front door. An email confirmation says, “We hope it puts a smile on your face.”
Visitors spending even the shortest amount of time in California quickly see with their own eyes that it's hard to beat a California sunset.

It's no secret that surfing is ingrained in the history and culture of California. You can't escape it, even if you aren't a surfer yourself, whether it's the myriad of surf shops along the coast or bicyclists riding down the street with a surfboard strapped to the side of their bike. However, for those who aren't experienced surfers, taking the sport up can be overwhelming. However, a few hotels along the California coastline are making it easier for those who want to test the surfing waters. Today we feature a few of California's best hotels that mix staying with surfing.
While you may still catch a whiff of fermentation in the California air thanks to an incredibly late harvest, the 2011 vintage from one magical part of the world has already been bottled, boxed, and is hitting ports in our city by the bay.
Yes, it’s that time of the year: between the harvest and the holidays. The time for Beaujolais Nouveau.
Goodbye Tahoe. Hello California.
That’s the track Northstar resort is taking after the recent decision to make an adjustment to its moniker.
“There was a massive line of debate on whether we should make the change,” said Bill Rock, the resort’s chief operating officer. “But (the change) is a statement of where the brand is going.”
So, instead of going to Northstar-at-Tahoe, a popular Truckee-area destination for San Francisco snowsports enthusiasts since its opening in 1972, skiers and snowboarders will now be making tracks at Northstar California (that little star logo seen around the resort has been tweaked a bit as well).
