Maybe this one is already well known, but I'd like to add: Point Reyes National 
Seashore on US 1 north of San Francisco. This area was by far the highlight of 
our trip to Northern California 2 years ago, and we stumbled on it purely by 
accident. The original "destination" was the Napa Valley, which was a bit of 
let down, mainly because we arrived on a weekend. Point Reyes has a wonderful 
range of climatic zones similar to Denman/Hornby Islands in BC, and also gives 
one the sense of time travelling as you pass though 19th century farms, still 
operating much as they were 100 years ago.
