We last explored Highway 1 South, stopping off at Monterey Bay. Now, as we head north, we’ll discover the culinary wonders of San Francisco, the award winning vintages of California’s Wine Country, and the amazing wilds of Coastal Northern California. And as you will be in the wild for several stretches and facing the possibility of car break down cover your rental with insurance that includes a free tow or two, as it may cost a few nights worth of accommodation to get towed back to civilization.

North of the bridge, Highway 1 will run concurrently with the 101 as a busy freeway, so look for the road signs in Marin County and branch off back for the coast as soon as possible. Not long after you will enter Sonoma County and meet up with the coastline once again. Read the full story »
