Best Staycation Spots in the Bay Area

While summer may be coming to an end, that also means tourist season is coming to an end. And what better way to celebrate than to head to your favorite spots in the Bay that have been overrun with tourists the last few months?

Here are our favorite spots to spend a dreamy little night away from home (without traveling too far).

1. Carmel Valley Ranch
Complete with trails, lavender fields, a market and restaurant, a spa, tennis courts, 18-hole golf course, and their own apiary, there is truly something for everyone in the family.

2. Fairmont San Jose
Located in the heart of downtown, surrounded by museums, parks, and restaurants the Fairmont of San Jose is an iconic hotel with prime location. Enjoy relaxing on the rooftop pool, or enjoy a cocktail in the lobby bar for an elegant evening.

3. Hotel Valencia Santana Row
Step back in time to old world Spain at Hotel Valencia nestled inside the bustling and luxurious shopping district, Santana Row. Have a poptail (popsicle + cocktail) on the pool deck or indulge in a meal at one of their four dining options. They even offer special packages including tours of the nearby and iconic Winchester Mystery House.

4. Cavallo Point
Head north towards the city, but enjoy a quaint getaway at Cavallo Point. This charming lodge was once a functioning military base protecting the north side of the Golden Gate bridge. Today, you can enjoy a relaxing stay with incredible views.

5. Auberge du Soleil
We know there are endless options in Wine Country but Auberge is truly one of our favorites. Located off the Silverado Trail, you are sure to love this beautiful and relaxing resort and their famous panoramic view of the entire Napa Valley.
