    So many places. So little time. Plenty of good suggestions here. Lived in Santa Rosa about an hour north of SF for a good part of my younger days.

    SF is one of my fav cities. So much diversity all packed into a small area. Most good spots found on cable car routes. Chinatown is a must see. Fishermans wharf as well. Both a bit touristy but fun.

    Cable Car Routes & Maps

    A proper tour of the "wine country" would be between Calistoga and Napa. If it was me I would drive from SF though Santa Rosa to Calistoga to Napa then return to SF. Frequent stops on the way of course.

    You are sure to have a great trip. Btw, when you open the right hand door to drive off, rummage about in the glove compartment. Folks will think you intended to do it. Less embarassing ya know.

    Mr NR will be driving. I can't drive (I know - shameful!). I expect us both to go round to the wrong side of the car fairly frequently, though!

    Leaving out Disneyland is a tad sad.

    Brilliant day out for the Newbie.
