On the ocean side of the Golden Gate Bridge, you'll get the most awe-inspiring view of the GG Bridge & San Francisco from here. This spot is in plenty of movies, yet it's very peaceful & quiet area.

About an hour drive from us. I just love to drive/bike through the canopy over the entrance road to the VA memorial. On the other end sits Yountville, the birth place of the French Laundry. You're in middle of Napa Valley. Natural Hot Springs in Calistoga, Massage, Wine & Dine on a classy coach train, Balloon ride at Dawn or dusk. Best of everything in one place.
