Banshee Wines, and Siduri.
Continue along Highway
101 and State Route 128 to The
Bewildered Pig in Philo. This
perfectly out-of-the-way foodie
mecca serves a prix fixe tasting
menu highlighted by locally
foraged vegetables and herbs.
Jump back in the car to find

north at the elegant Little
River Inn, overlooking the Van

ith its lush forest and
dramatic sea cliffs, the
destination-worthy
Patrick's Point State Park
is one of the most ruggedly
romantic square miles in the
state-and it beckons couples
to tie the knot here on its aptly
named Wedding Rock.
Let the park's crashing
waves call you northward from
San Francisco. Start your
journey at Lands End, where you
can hike along a coastal trail to
spot offshore shipwrecks and
ruins of the Sutro Baths. Stop in
the swanky Cliff House for panoramic views served alongside
Bloody Marys, before driving
across the Golden Gate Bridge.
Snake along the protected
coastline of Point Reyes National
Seashore before stopping in
Marshall for local oysters,
served bubbling hot off the barbecue at Nick's Cove. Next, cut

Healdsburg. Window shop and

downtown, stopping by intimate
tasting rooms like Selby Winery,
