When visiting the SF Bay Area this is a fabulous day trip to Highway 1, specifically from Bodega Bay to Fort Ross. It is a curvy well maintained road with fabulous views at every turn. Many turnouts aford views North and South. Goat Rock and Goat Rock Beach is one of my favorites. You are at the surfline and have a beauitful beach to walk with restrooms, parking and fabulous views. Finish your drive with a fabulous dinner at The Tides in Bodega Bay. I lived in CA for 28 years and just discovered the Goat Rock this week There is so much in this area and I am always discovering new gems. Bring a picnic lunch and enjoy the views. Storm watching in the winter is a deligth too. Just a great place to enjoy nature and the beauty of the Pacific Ocean and California Coast with little congestion. Treat yourself to this drive during your next visit to the Bay Area!
