Welcome to San Francisco ! Upon arrival, meet your chauffeur and ride privately to your hotel. 

San Francisco is the kind of quirky place where a fog-calling contest might compete for attention with gala balls marking the opening of the symphony, opera and ballet seasons. From Union Square to North Beach to Japantown, you’ll find intriguing neighborhoods at every turn. The writers of the Beat Generation, the hippies of the Summer of Love in the late 1960s and the gay and lesbian population contributed in making the city what it is today. San Francisco is also one of the world’s great dining destinations, thanks in part to the diverse cultural influences and proximity of fresh ingredients.

This morning, pick-up your SUV in the city and drive to the beautiful Yosemite national park.

The jewel in the crown of California’s national parks, Yosemite National Park has been stunning visitors since the first two travelers laid eyes on it in 1855. Now, every year over 4 million people stand in awe of its unique natural treasures, which have been documented by everyone from early conservationist John Muir to legendary photographer Ansel Adams. Carved into the center of the Sierra Nevada Mountains by ancient geological forces, Yosemite’s splendor and biodiversity are so grand that it was even designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1984.

Explore the park at your own path. Yosemite is full of iconic landmarks. Marvel at the daring slopes of Half Dome, Yosemite’s nearly 2,700-meter trademark peak, and El Capitan, the largest single granite rock on Earth. Both sites lure rock climbers in droves (you’ll need to submit your name to a lottery if you’re hoping to climb Half Dome). If rock climbing isn’t on your to-do list, venture deeper into the park and visit the magnificent Yosemite Falls, the highest on the continent at nearly 740 meters. Or enjoy a relaxing stroll through Mariposa Grove, shaded by sequoia trees so tall that you can’t see the tops.

Head back west toward the Pacific ocean. Your destination; the charming little town of Carmel by the seaCarmel has long exerted a magnetic pull on artists and authors. Some of its earliest residents included writers Mary Austin, Sinclair Lewis, and Jack London, who fled post-earthquake San Francisco for the enclave’s bohemian appeal. Poet Robinson Jeffers, arriving with his wife in 1914, called the town “our inevitable place,” and built his stone Tor House, now open on weekends for tours, overlooking the ocean. That rich history of creativity has left its mark: Today Carmel is home to nearly 100 galleries that showcase works ranging from 19th-century Impressionism to contemporary pieces by artists not only from the Golden State, but from all over the world.
