Day 1: San Francisco

Your Northern California road trip adventures starts off with a bang. If you've never been to San Francisco, you'll want to cram in as much as you can in the city.

Day 2: Sausalito and Sonoma

Have your cameras ready as you cross the Golden Gate Bridge but if you miss it, you can stop at the convenient Golden Gate Bridge View Vista Point.
