Happy March + Weekend Links

 

Happy March! Today marks a new season to me, even though spring doesn’t officially start for a few weeks. Now that the snow has melted, I’ve been busy planning our spring/summer trips, parties and weekend adventures. There just seems to be so much to look forward to these days. Do you have anything exciting planned this season? Any recommendations for West Coast day trips we should definitely do? I’d love to know.

While I continue my spring planning, here are a few links to explore this weekend:

    Where on the West Coast are you looking to go? I’ve got quite a few favorite spots in Northern California. :)

      Jennifer, we have seen Nappa and SF and take the road from Reno through Sacramento pretty often. I’d love to go a bit more North though, especially on the coast… Any ideas? Thx!

    Yes! The north coast is a stunner. If you have the time, I would check out Stinson Beach and the Muir Woods/Beach area. Stinson is super cute. Be sure to stop at the Parkside Cafe. Fantastic breakfast/brunch spot.

    If you want to go even further north, the drive up 101 can’t be beat. Healdsburg also has a great wine scene, so I would check that out if you can. The 101 north of Garberville will get you to the redwoods. Arcata’s downtown is cool. Small, but they have cute shops. Trinidad is worth a stop. Great little seafood joints, if I remember correctly, and a pretty stretch of beach. If you make it up to Crescent City, which is where I grew up, be sure to get off the 101 and take the coastal road (Pebble Beach Drive). The beach is a great place to search for agates and there are tide pools at one end of the beach during low tide.

    It’s a long drive to get up there, but it’s worth exploring if you have the time. Have fun!

    I almost forgot! Be sure to check out the Trees of Mystery, if you make it that far north. It’s a few miles south of Crescent City and is a great family spot! http://www.treesofmystery.net/
