Which day trip, if any?

Am going to be in San Fransisco in October for three nights but only two full days. If I do a day trip, which is best, a trip to Napa wine tasting or a trip to Yosemite?

Thanks

Either one is a lot of fun, but a trip to Napa is probably more feasable logistically. The trip to Napa takes about an hour and a trip to Yosemite will take much, much longer. You will be able to see and do more in Napa before returning to San Francisco then you could in Yosemite.

There is so much to do in San Francisco that with such little time you will probably want to spend all of your time in the city.

If you do take a day trip I agree, Napa is the more logical. If you like wine Napa is a fun, easy, fairly short half-day or day trip. Yosemite is a four hour drive, one-way, without traffic.

You might also consider Berkeley or Sausalito for partial day trips. Both cities are close and easy to get to by public transportation and car. And each have thier own flare.
