San Francisco

San Francisco

Of course San Francisco is much more that just the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, and cable cars, and world-class dining, theatre, and museums only start the list. For committed shoppers Union Square with major department stores, surrounded by designer boutiques is a must. The Italian quarter, called "North Beach" has cafés, restaurants, and shopping, all wrapped up in San Francisco history. Don't forget Chinatown for exotic shops, markets, temples, and exquisite dining. Spiraling Golden Gate Park is simply a marvel. The list of arts and cultural attractions in San Francisco flows endlessly. There are museums, galleries, and installations of every genre and the nightlife is beyond description. You have to see it and Elite Destinations and Tours can show it to you.

Napa Valley - "Wine Country"

Napa Valley - "Wine Country"

Wine is often the number one reason people visit Napa County but there is so much more. Becoming a county before California even became a state, the historical Napa is ever-present and illustrious to be sure. Modern day Napa Valley (and across the county), is up to speed on world-class accommodations, arts, dining, outdoor activities (such as biking, golfing, and even lounging by the pool). Additionally, Napa has amenities like the big city conference centers, wedding locations, and day spas. Unlike the big city there are lots of vintners eager to have you take a seat and sample their many offerings. Oh, and don't forget the hot air balloon rides.

Sonoma Valley - "Wine Country"

Sonoma Valley - "Wine Country"

Producing wine as early as the 1870s, Sonoma Valley is considered the "birthplace" of the California wine industry. But this destination has a whole lot more to offer than just wine. As it has grown up, Sonoma has a film festival, botanical gardens, the last Spanish mission, the historic home of author Jack London, and of course an amazingly beautiful landscape, and every aspect of Sonoma goes great with a glass of wine. Additionally, there are natural hot springs nearby and lots of hiking trails. With a name like "Valley of the Moon" you have to know Sonoma is a special little place. We'll show you around.

Monterey

Monterey

Harbored in a vast and natural bay, Monterey is closely connected to the ocean. As a thriving city before the establishment of the state of California in 1846, Spanish and Mexican history remains. Since that time Monterey has grown up with a world-class aquarium and internationally known jazz festival. Monterey has even evolved commercial sites in to attractions such as Fisherman's Wharf and Cannery Row fronting a state marine conservation area.

Carmel-by-the-Sea

Carmel-by-the-Sea

Naturally scenic, Carmel-by-the-Sea attracts artist and nature lovers for the simple reason that the windswept beauty of this California coast city is hard to forget. Like many cities on the Spanish Mission trail, Carmel (as it is often called), shares a rich history including that of; indigenous peoples, Spaniards, Mexicans, and Americans. Actually, Carmel is named after the Spanish Mission San Carlos Borromeo de Carmelo and if that happened in the late 1700s you know there's a lot more history to explore. In the early 1900s, Carmel was the center of an artist colony that still influences the city. City planners continue to preserve the eclectic and borderline whimsical character of Carmel-by-the-Sea as an enduring expression of individuality. (Don't forget the place is incredibly beautiful?)

Yosemite National Park

Yosemite National Park

Yosemite National Park, covering over 1,000 square miles, this park is found on the western slopes of the Sierra Nevada mountain range. The natural beauty of this park is the obvious reason over 5 million visitors came to the park in one recent year alone. The diversity of animal and plant life, such as the giant sequoia tree, is why President Abraham Lincoln signed on to preserving the natural beauty of the Yosemite Valley for future generations. The park contains five different "life zones" supporting rare and beautiful plant life. Yet it is the granite cliffs and waterfalls that more easily capture the imagination of those thinking about visiting.
