Overview

San Francisco's grace and sophistication have earned it a reputation as the most "European" city in the United States. And with Wine Country just a short drive over the Golden Gate Bridge, the Bay Area is rich with old-world ambiance. Whether the scene you're looking for is cosmopolitan or counterculture, you'll find it among the rolling hills and fog.

Just be sure to bring an empty stomach. This area boasts the celebrated restaurants that gave California Cuisine its name, along with hidden gems offering menus from around the world. Savor the bounty with a hand-crafted wine (or some of the strongest coffee on the planet), and you'll understand why so many find the Bay Area so irresistible.

We offer more than 100 places of interest at your fingertips, with insider advice on restaurants, shops, spas, and wineries. And we give readers street-by-street walking tours to explore neighborhoods like North Beach, Chinatown, and Haight Ashbury, as well as some fun day trips to experience crashing surf, towering redwoods, plus an in-depth driving tour to unforgettable wineries in Napa and Sonoma!
