Overview

Tired of the same old tourist traps? Whether you’re a visitor or a local looking for something different, let Northern California Off the Beaten Path show you the Golden State you never knew existed. Follow the bloodstained trail of Sam Spade and other characters from The Maltese Falcon in San Francisco; overnight at a bed-and-breakfast located inside a working lighthouse on East Brother Island; or eat at a restaurant in Castroville that specializes in artichokes cooked two dozen different ways. So if you’ve "been there, done that" one too many times, get off the main road and venture Off the Beaten Path. *Head to Gilroy, famous for its annual Garlic Festival, and don’t miss Garlic World (located off US 101), where you can find just about anything related to “the stinking rose”—braids, gifts, souvenirs, and gourmet items like garlic ice cream!
