With the constant sunshine of the south and its showbiz allure, guests of the Good Nite Inn Rohnert Park and LA will undoubtedly have a great time of it but the north offers something entire;ly different. From its laid back cities to its beautiful mountainous landscapes, everything feels a little different in the north.
Whether you’re here for a week or you’re simply passing through on your way to the Good Nite Inn Redwood City, this blog will explore some of the best days out in Northern California for first time visitors. From city attractions in San Fran and Sacramento to the great outdoors of the northern Californian coastline, this is your introduction to the beautiful north of California.
Sample Wine Country
Napa Valley and Martha’s Vineyard are areas of Northern California that are well known for their fertile soil and ideal vineyard conditions. This means that the area is teeming with hotels and wineries that offer tours and tastings of some of the world’s best chardonnays and cabernet sauvignons. The history of many of these vineyards date back into the 19th century, so there’s plenty to see in this serene area just below the San Francisco Bay.
Golden Gate Bridge And Park
On the subject of the San Francisco Bay, the Golden Gate Bridge and State Park are two of the most famous attractions in San Francisco, a city known for its rich Victorian history, liberal culture and exciting nightlife. The art deco designed bridge made famous by countless Hollywood movies is a 1.7 mile suspension bridge that has become one of the most iconic of its kind. Golden Gate Park should not be overlooked either, it being a hub for beautiful botany, museums and cultural events throughout the year.
The State Capitol Of Sacramento
With the Sacramento Capitol Museum including tours of the historic offices of the legislature and governor of California, the State Capitol in the capital city of California is a must visit for guests of Redwood City hotels who have an interest in the development and history of the state. Dating back to the mid 1860s, the State Capitol is known as one of the defining architectural structures in California.
Yosemite National Park
For some of the best views of Californian landscape, Yosemite National Park near the broder of Nevada is unrivalled. With a stunning collection of mountains to climb and riverside hiking trails, this beautiful park stretches across thousands of acres of undisturbed natural beauty. Make sure to see the redwood trees and rock formations such as Half Dome and El Capitan. Upper and Lower Yosemite Falls are two of the most popular hiking trails in the area and cascades water from the Yosemite Creek down 739 metres.
Redwood National And State Parks
From collections of Redwoods to the biggest congregation of them in the US, Redwood National and State Parks are coastal nature reserves that offer nearby Good Nite Inn guests with stunning vistas over the northern Californian coastline, all bordered by some of the oldest trees in the world. Don’t miss the drive down the Avenue of Giants, a road through the reserve that winds through the magical forest and is no doubt one of the best journeys you’ll take in California.
