Fun “Bottle Shock: Behind the ScenesTour” at Chateau Montelena in Napa Valley

The serene setting at Chateau Montelena’s Jade Lake has to be one of the most spectacular sights in Napa Valley.  And the winery’s “Bottle Shock: Behind the Scenes Tour” was one of the most enjoyable tours we’ve taken this year!

Top 15+ Fun Things To Do in San Francisco – Now is a Great Time to Visit

September and October are great times to visit San Francisco – the cool summer fog is gone. And in nearby Sonoma and Napa Valley Wine Country, harvest season is in full swing. As locals, we love playing tourist for the day – the “city by the bay” and surrounding areas offer so many fun things to do and see. Here are a few suggestions for visitors and locals alike:

1. Take a fun Alcatraz and San Francisco City Tour. Book early because it sells out almost every day. Once an infamous Federal Penitentiary, Alcatraz (“The Rock” ) was home to Al “Scarface” Capone, George “Machine Gun” Kelly and Robert “The Birdman” Stroud.The “Cell Block” audio walking tours are fascinating. See famous waterfront views of San Francisco Bay and the beautiful Golden Gate Bridge. Visit fun local attractions, including Chinatown, Fisherman’s Wharf, Victorian homes, North Beach… and more!
