Offering spectacular bayfront and three iconic bridges backlit by fireworks, San Francisco has long been one of America’s most popular cities for ringing in the New Year. Whether you choose a concert; a hotel party; or simply watching fireworks from a waterfront restaurant, along the Ferry Building, near AT&T Park or from one of the […]
Trips to gorgeous Napa have always ranked high on my list – so much so that I recently moved to Northern California and now go all the time. When a friend came to visit from NYC, her first trip to wine country, I took it as an excuse to tour some wineries VIP style in a limo tour.

It’s as much about riding the Segway itself as it is about seeing the sights.
My very favorite part about the San Francisco CityPASS was the first ticket in the book: the MUNI Passport. San Francisco has great public transportation (and terrible parking) so having unlimited use of the city’s excellent transit system in the bag made getting around a snap. And yes, you can use it on the “little cable cars that go halfway to the stars” too.
