Coming up in August is the 45th Gravenstein Apple Fair in Sebastopol (Sonoma County). This west county event is a fun outing. Expect Great food, cider, apple juice, pies (the best pies!), and more for the family. It's the start of harvest, so you may want to hit up a winery or two while you're there in the heart of the Russian River.
If you buy early ticket you can save a few bucks. More info here: www.gravensteinapplefair.com
The San Francisco Bay Area offers a landscape that is as diverse geologically as it is culturally. There are thousands of places to explore and re-explore. We tend to write mostly about the North Bay and East Bay, but we take trips to discover places all over the bay (including San Francisco).
