Northern California

Summer Getaway Guide

May 27, 2020

While we’re living in very uncertain times, one thing is for sure – the desire to travel, explore, and discover new places does not disappear. Luckily for us Californians, we have some pretty amazing destinations right in our own backyard. Here you’ll find our complete Northern California Summer Getaway Guide – all within driving distance of San Francisco, making them the ideal weekend (or week-long) destinations.

Hotels will be opening with new guidelines to protect the safety and health of guests and staff. At this point many properties are just waiting to get the go-ahead from government officials. We’ll be watching closely as opening dates are confirmed (or changed). You can always send us a note to find out the latest.

Please reach out if you’re interested in booking anything! As noted below, when #bookedbyarbiter, our clients get amazing perks (and usually upgrades), and we often have access to exclusive incentives! (As a side note, I’ve heard that sometimes clients or followers are hesitant to reach out for one-night stays or weekend trips, afraid that they are “wasting my time” with smaller requests. I promise you, you’re not!)

And if you’re interested in a longer road trip within the Golden State, check out our Southern California Summer Getaway Guide too!
