We’re lucky to live in the “best little town in California”, a small pioneer town with a history of fruit-packing, horseback-riding, and railroad shipping. At Tri-City Self Storage, we love our hometown and the cities surrounding it, but we also get restless during the wet, chilly winter months. After all, the Golden State is huge, beautiful, and demands to be explored. Loomis is conveniently close to Sacramento, San Francisco, and other Northern California gems, so why not celebrate the warmer seasons with a short road trip?
This spring, take advantage of your West Coast lifestyle and plan a weekend retreat that truly takes you into a different world. If you’re from Loomis, these three spring getaway ideas will give you a whole new taste of California, just two to three hours from home.
1. Point Reyes Peninsula
Want to spend a weekend on the water without dealing with hordes of sunburnt tourists? Point Reyes Peninsula is lined with miles of charming coastal towns, so rent a waterfront cabin and explore the communities and National Seashore at your leisure. Some to-do’s you absolutely must cross off: walk through the picturesque Cypress Tree Tunnel, hike to Alamere Falls, climb the Point Reyes Lighthouse, and dine at a longtime local favorite like Hog Island Oyster Company in Marshall or the Coast Café in Bolinas. Each town on the Peninsula has its own unique character, so if you’re planning a group getaway, there’s something for everyone here.
2. Calistoga Ranch in Napa Valley
Forget everything you know about weekends on the ranch, because Calistoga is no ordinary farmland. This Napa Valley getaway is a secluded resort nestled into a lush natural landscape, where the world-class amenities are designed to match and adapt to their mystical surroundings. Just six miles from Old Faithful, the resort sits on a private lake in a private canyon, surrounded by rolling California hills and teeming with ancient oak trees. If you really want to escape your everyday routine, check into Calistoga Ranch for the weekend, and treat yourself to a scenic spa experience with an on-site vineyard and acres of unforgettable hiking opportunities.
3. Lake Tahoe
It wouldn’t be a California spring without a long weekend at Lake Tahoe, but don’t drive all the way there without a game plan. There are plenty of underrated and little-known spots around this bright blue body of water, but the most popular attractions are well-known for a reason. In between stops at the best kept secrets like rocky Hidden Beach and bold Secret Cove, don’t shy away from “touristy” opportunities like breathtaking gondola rides through the sky or kayaking across the lake.
