You'll find plenty of places to visit near San Francisco: Bothe-Napa State Park (in Calistoga), Gundlach Bundschu Winery (in Sonoma) and Muir Woods National Monument (in Mill Valley). And it doesn't end there: step off the mainland to explore Alcatraz Island, take in the views from Golden Gate Bridge, browse the different shops at Ghirardelli Square, and examine the collection at SS Jeremiah O'Brien.
