Soak up the breathtaking panoramas of rugged shorelines and towering redwoods near Mendocino and sample the exquisite vintages of Napa Valley. Farther southwards will find you driving along the Marin Headlands as you approach lively San Francisco, with its iconic Golden Gate Bridge and such landmarks as Chinatown (the largest in the United States), Fisherman's Warf and the Ferry Building Marketplace.
