I heard about Napa valley, there are lots of vineyard over there, perhaps it's interesting to go there. I will check the other places you recomment to me, thanks for your tips.
north of ca is called oregon
I am from North Cali. North of Sacramento. I could name a few places you might want to see or in Oregon. Depends wher you will be.
Thanks Ocho, I just want to see something special, not only the places for tourist, and try to have experience to close the local life style.
While in San Francisco I would recommend a trip to City Lights Bookstore. It was an important meeting place for, and publisher of, the Beat Generation poets (like Allen Ginsberg, Gary Snyder, Jack Kerouac). There's a ton of history and activism in that place and it's still an important part of the progressive culture of S.F.
Have a great trip! (and I'm with Stefan on his recommendation of Yosemite National Park: it's a "must see" in my book).
Thank Matthew, now I can full my schedule. ; )
