World-Class Dining. With San Francisco being only an hour and a half away and San Jose only an hour, you have some ridiculously tasty options.
Hike the State Parks. There are so many State Parks that surround the Jupe Redwoods that the hardest decision is which one to go to. Either way, you won’t be disappointed. There are even some waterfalls and old-growth redwoods for you to find.
Discover the Pinnipeds. Seals! Right down the road is one of the largest coastal rookeries of elephant seals. Thousands are born each year at Año Nuevo State Park. Make sure to grab a reservation during the winter mating season.
Secluded Beaches. Head to Greyhound Beach and spend a little effort to make it to the beach and there is a good chance you will have space just to yourself.
Extend the Mescal Bar Tradition. Deep within the core of a thousand-year-old redwood is a hidden mescal bar. There is only one rule in the Mescal Bar: In order to drink in the ancient giant, you must offer up your own bottle of mescal for the next people to discover. Drink what was left for you and pass it forward.
Sleep Beneath the Bridges. Hammocks have been placed beneath the bridges that cross over the Creek. Take a nap or hang out while the water flows beneath you.

Yoga by the Water. Lay out a mat by the brook or head to a nearby beach. Take a deep breath and try to clear your mind for a moment.
Read a Paperback. There’s something about holding a real book. It’s a little world in your hands. Read in your Jupe or by the fireside.
Commune with the Redwoods. Spend some time walking beneath the giant trees. Each one is an ecosystem of its own – its own tiny planet to the organisms that inhabit it. There is so much to learn from these great beings.
Walk the Infinity Trail. The site has a quarter-mile trail loop that is both useful for staying out of Nature’s way and for contemplation. Walk it in the morning, the afternoon, and at night and think about meaning, existentialism, and yourself within nature.
