Hiking

Napa and Sonoma Counties offer more than just vineyards. Actually, they are both packed with wilderness as the unique topography gives way to foggy forests, petrified trees and crazy rock formations. Bothe-Napa Valley State Park and Sugarloaf State Park are both great places for exploring the backwoods.

Biking

The biking options in wine country are plentiful and highly recommended. Check out Napa Valley Bike Tours for rental information and suggested routes. No matter if you’re a biking enthusiast or just a casual biker, there’s an itinerary available for you. Blaze past vineyards on backcountry roads or take the main drag through some of the beautiful small towns dotted throughout Napa Valley.

Date Differently: Date Night Ideas to Spice Things Up

Honeymooning is  not a destination; it’s a journey, and hot dates are key to staying in love long-time.

e0847c4d82661a555a6fb586819fd236 Date Differently: Date Night Ideas to Spice Things Up

Love is a many-splendored thing and deserves revelry– making that amazing “honeymoon phase” last. But How, you ask? Two words: date differently. This might seem like a no-brainer, but so many of us (we’re guilty, too) are sometimes too quick to get stuck in our routines: laundry, Netflix binges, or going into the office on a Sunday.  Instead, try carving out a solid block of time to spend exclusively with your love, doing something different. If you need more of an incentive, this week we’re offering 20% off your Wanderable Date Nights with code DATENIGHT20.

Here are some of our favorite San Francisco date night ideas (don’t worry, east-coasters, we’ll be getting to you in later posts) that you could do even this weekend to spice things up a little bit.

Best Cheap Eats in San Francisco

We’ve already shared our go-to restaurants in San Francisco, for those times when you’re willing to splurge a little. So here is the list of our favorite bargain gems. One thing SF is known for is its variety of amazing food at any price-point. These places drive that point home.

 Best Cheap Eats in San Francisco

Yamo:  The epitome of a hole-in-the-wall restaurant. They practically cook on top of you, but this only adds to the experience and the food is amazing!

Sushi Time:  We can’t decide what we love more… the ambiance, the price or the food. This underground spot is an all around pleaser. Sushi is never a cheap outing but this place is extremely reasonable, especially for the Bay Area.

El Metate:  A little bit off the beaten path, in the Mission district, but hands-down worth the trip. Great ambiance, prices and food. This is definitely a step-up from your standard taqueria.
