Though the Bay Area is known as a bustling metropolis, this region is filled with splendid natural areas, including Point Reyes National Seashore, San Pablo Bay National Wildlife Refuge, and famous peaks like Mt. Diablo. Napa and Sonoma in the north lure oenophiles from far and wide with scenery that’s as renowned as the region’s wine.
