Visiting California's North Coast

A coveted travel destination all year long, California’s north coast really comes alive this spring and summer. Travel north from San Francisco and the Bay Area along US Route 101 to become immersed in the charm of communities like Petaluma, Santa Rosa, Eureka, and Crescent City, where countless special events and activities await spring and summer visitors.

What better place to celebrate Earth Day than in the beautiful surroundings of Santa Rosa? On April 18th, the 2015 Earth Day Festival fills the Downtown Courthouse Square with food, live entertainment, kids’ fun, and a variety of environmentally educational activities.

With a sizable population, Santa Rosa serves as an urban hub for the region, meaning visitors have a multitude of entertainment options at their fingertips. The Wells Fargo Center for the Arts is a frequent host of big-name acts – Steely Dan plays two nights, on April 7th and 8th, and comedienne Anjelah Johnson does two shows on May 9th.

March, April, and May are peak wine season in northern California and travelers through the region would be remiss not to stop and sample the creations of wineries like Sebastiani Vineyards, Ravenswood Winery, and Hanzell Vineyards in Sonoma.

May visitors won’t want to miss a chance to treat Mom to a day full of delicious barbecue and sparkling wines from award-winning regional wineries at the 2015 Mothers’ Day Bubbles & BBQ event on May 10th. The festivities are held at Gloria Ferrer Caves & Vineyards in Sonoma and the fun starts at 10 a.m.

Foodies from Fortuna, Eureka, and Arcata flock to Arcata Main Street’s 25th Anniversary Arcata Bay Oyster Festival on June 20th at the Arcata Plaza. Join the fun and tantalize your taste buds with oysters and other festival food, drink locally produced beer and wine, and dance the day away in front of multiple stages showcasing live local music. Bring the whole family – there will be plenty of entertainment for the kids.

To the far north, Crescent City serves as the ideal base camp for a Redwood National Park excursion, and this is the perfect time of year to explore the park’s majestic redwood giants – some of which are more than 700 years old.

Start training early for the 2015 Crescent City Triathlon and 11th Annual Kids’ Triathlon. Relay teams and individuals alike gather at Fred Endert Pool at Beach Front Park in Crescent City at 8:30 a.m. on August 16th.
