What can you do beyond San Francisco? Yes, today we're talking about things you can do beyond the bridge, which you can get to by BART, Amtrak, ferry or car. Transportation options to get you to these fantastic destinations are endless.

Marin County
Marin County is perfect for beautiful views, outdoor activity and overnight camping. Be sure to check out the Marin Headlands for a view of the Golden Gate Bridge you'll never forget. Head into the trees at Muir Woods and get above the fog atop Mt. Tam.

Wine Country
Napa Valley or Sonoma County? It's too hard for locals to choose, so why should you? Head to both of these destinations to visit and drink wine from California's best wineries.

Monterey County
Drive south to Monterey to swim among the fishes at the Monterey Bay Aquarium, located at the ocean's edge on historic Cannery Row. Visit sea otters, penguins, sharks, jellies and thousands of other marine animals and plants.

Hop over the bay to Oakland for a delicious meal or two. Jack London Square and Uptown are two delicious neighborhoods, with numerous dining options.

Tuolumne County
The gateway to Yosemite is only a short four-hour drive away with tour options like Extranomical Tours. There you can sample yummy ciders, explore Gold Rush-era historical sights and enjoy year-round outdoor activities.
