Ya gotta come see! We'll give ya the "what's hot and what's not" list.
Yup. Fly into San Jose (it's FAR cheaper than SFO or OAK, then Go up the peninsula past Google, Yahoo, eBay, NASA, Oracle, etc, over the GGB, a slight detour over Mt Tamalpais, and then on into Sebastopol. Another day you can hit the Winchester Mystery House, um, Big Basin, if you're into GIANT redwoods.... ohhh, lots of places. Don't bother with theMystery Spot, unless you're really, really, really bored. Instead, time it right, and go to Natural Arches, with the billions of monarch butterflies. Albion Bog, The Darlingtonia up in far NorCal, or even the Darlingtonia wayside in Oregon.
