Fall is upon us and it is one of my favorite times of the year in Northern California. The mornings are crisp and the days warm. All the various microclimates in the area are temperate and the crowds have thinned after the summer surge. It is the perfect time of year to explore this part of the state.
If you’re traveling to Northern California from afar or looking for a local getaway, the options are endless. Find a cozy place to stay by the beach, from Carmel up to Fort Bragg, or out in the forest groves. Whether you’re looking for a coastal escape, a retreat into the redwoods, or an urban oasis, Northern California has an Airbnb for you!
