WHETHER YOU ARE A TREE-HUGGER, urbanite, beach bum or unrepentant hedonist, welcome to the
party: Scenic gems and prime locations for your adventures abound all over the Bay Area. Most are a
short drive (sans traffic) from the South Bay, ideal for a weekend getawa y.
Since we live and work—and play—at the epicenter of a vast variety of terrains and environmen ts,
the possibilities for enjoyment are endless. They beckon for city slickers who crave a night out on th e
town, outdoorsy adventurers with lofty ambitions, or leisure lovers who long to while away the hou rs
adrift on a lazy river. Our enviable task is to offer you six expeditions that take advantage of our area’s
bounty of choices and are all but impossible to resist. We start in Sonoma and work our way south.
