The Muir Woods National Monument is an example of an old growth Coastal Redwood forest less than 30 minutes from downtown San Francisco. The Sonoma Wine Country is world reknown for its delicious varietals. Both destinations are beautiful year round but each season has different highlights. The rains of Winter swell the creeks which allows spawing Salmon and Trout access to their ancestral breeding grounds and the rolling hills are lush and green . The sun of Spring gives rise to the vibrant coastal wildflowers. The fog of Summer brings a repsite from the intense heat of the valleys and the Indian Summer of Fall provides the ideal conditions for the annual grape harvest. Whatever time of year you choose to visit the Redwoods and Wine County we believe you will be impressed with the balance of nature and culture.
