NORTHERN CALIFORNIA

NORTHERN CALIFORNIA

So much more than wine...although the wine is great.

The best thing about Northern California is that it can be so many things to so many people. From the sophistication of San Francisco to the casual elegance of the Napa Valley (we already mentioned the wine), to the South Bay and the high-tech culture of the Silicon Valley, and the coastal charm of Half Moon Bay. Don’t forget the majestic seaside enclaves of Monterey and Carmel, and the inspiring beauty of Lake Tahoe.  Northern California’s diversity in both culture and geography make the perfect cosmopolitan backdrop for any event or program.

Destination Highlights

WINE COUNTRY

Napa Valley reigns as the land of grand estates, expansive tasting rooms, quaint towns, and elegant lodgings - many of which edge up to the celebrated Silverado Trail. Roughly an hour’s drive north of San Francisco and boasting more than 400 wineries, Napa Valley is a wine-lover's paradise, inviting guests to explore beyond the region’s signature Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay.

GOLDEN GATE CITY

Cable cars, a sparkling bay, streets lined with elegant Victorian homes, and that iconic "international orange" bridge... San Francisco is undeniably one of the world’s great cities.

TOURISM

We say it all the time - tourist hotspots are hot for a reason - because they're interesting, historical, and fun! While we love showing off the city's hidden gems or "locals only" spots, it just wouldn't be right to pass up a ride on a cable car or a photo op in front of the bridge!

CULTURE

San Francisco is one of the most influential cities in the world. Art, music, theater, food, and politics are just a few things that have been impacted the world over by its rich, progressive, multi-cultural history.
