Family of two adults plus three teenagers ,19 ,17 and 13 ,coming to calistoga on 24th july for a week befroe moving onto san fran for three days and then onto carmel for the last week..
Looking to plan two day trips out of calistoga-no more than a 2.5 hr each way.
Sacremento seems to be a no no by all accounts i have read.
Mendocino and a trip on skunk railway seems interesting ...is it?
Also looked at bodega bay and surrounds?
Oter possibility yosemite however ihear it will be phenomenally busy with tours etc.
With relation to wineries ,we will get to see those in between these trips,and have planned same based on excellent feedback in here.
So there we are -what would you do if you had these two day trips available ?
many thanks in advance for all the great help and advice given and about to be given.
