Probably should go for a hike in the John Muir woods, see the majestic redwoods.

And first Saturday at DNA lounge is also good.

He's from Colorado, I'm sure he doesn't want to go hiking in our puny woods. Wine country is always a good bet if you are of legal age, even if you are not into wine, it's a beautiful area. Of course hit as much coastline as possible because you don't have any in Colorado. A baseball game at Pac Bell park is nice. Totally different than Coors field. What are your interests?

I am actually going with my parents (hey its a free vacation) I might be able to go my own way for a little while though.

How far away are the redwoods? I would like to see the BIG trees...not tiny ones like we have. How far down the coast do the views last?

You should come North across the Golden Gate to Mendocino county to see some nice redwoods. You'll pass a lot of vineyards a long the way and awesome twisty roads

Default hiking

You could do a short hike from the Cliff House to Lands End.

This hike would show the ocean view to your left and the local vegetations to your right. Wide open trail. Its a nice hike then you could continue further and walk to the ocean.

Ooo yeah! Monterey. I second that. Highway 1 in Big Sur rocks! You can see the bridge that's in all the car commercials.

can always go to Sonoma
can visit the wineries and drink wine (if you're old enough)
can watch some races (if there are any) at the Infineon Raceway

http://www.infineonraceway.com/

FROM SAN FRANCISCO:
Cross Golden Gate Bridge to Highway 101 north. Take Highway 37 eastbound toward Vallejo. Left at Highway 121. Track is one-quarter mile up on the left.

If you will be here on the weekend of 7/11-7/13, you have to go to Laguna Seca for the World Superbike races. This is their only stop in the US. If you are here on the weekend of 7/25-7/27, then check out ALMS at Infineon Raceway. Not only is ALMS running that weekend, Speed World Challenge will be running with their GT and TC groups. Another treat for that weekend is that STRANA will be running also, with their semi tractors on Infineon.

We are just vacationing...getting away from colorado for a little while. I will be in town from the 20th to the 25th so I should see if I can go to at least one day at Infineon Raceway. I wish I could go sample some wine but sadly I am only 19.

Thanks for all the suggestions...also what bridge is it I always see in all the car commercials? and how do I get there?

Homer's talkin about the Bixby Bridge:



And not only is it car commercials, it also seems to be in every movie that features San Francisco too. (Never mind, of course, that it is about 2-1/2 to 3 hours away from San Francisco... )

You get there by taking Hwy 1 about 30-40 minutes south of Carmel/Moneterey, which I highly recommend also. Your parents will dig it too...something for everyone. Monterey Bay Aquarium, scenic 17-Mile drive. The region is about 2 hours from SF.

can visit Fisherman's Wharf and scope out some honeys or just enjoy the fresh seafood and view.

or if you're feel'n brave and adventurist you can try out CHINATOWN. Just soak in the atmosphere.

ride the famous cable cars...

or drive up and down that winding road, forgot what its called..

visit San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (if you're into art)

visit the Metreon bunch of Sony products

drive on 101-South or 101-North during RUSH HOUR (between 3pm and 5pm) and experience the traffic

check out http://www.sfgate.com and search for things to do all over the Bay Area.

I like the big trees at Big Basin (near Santa Cruz) a bit more than Muir Woods. If you head down to Monterey, consider that, but Muir Woods is pretty close to SF.

The Marin Headlands part of Golden Gate Nat'l Park, at the north end of the Golden Gate Bridge, is a great place to stop for views of the bridge, SF, cliffs, the ocean, etc. I always take visitors there, they never complain.

Point Reyes, if it's not foggy, is a good place to look at the ocean. Nice beaches on the south side, huge waves on the north, and cliffs (and even a nice light house) on the end.

The coast (highway 1) is great from Monterey south. Drive as far as you have time for.

And finally . . . probably out of range but Yosemite Valley is only a few hours drive away, and will impress even someone used to the Rockies. Plus they have the really big trees (Giant Sequoias).

Yeah, go for a walk in the local vegitation, you might be a little surprised at what you find. Especially if it's a weekday or morning.

You guys trying to scare him?
