Spring Into A Road Trip — Three Places Worth Visiting


Date posted :04/08/2016

Central Coast, CaliforniaSpring is in full swing, and with the early summer-like weather in Silicon Valley and the greater Bay Area, more and more people are heading outdoors and out of town. Road trip, anyone?

Staying in town for the weekend? If you’re a fan of fast rides, fun and funnel cakes, Great America has opened its doors for the 2016 season! Beyond the usual roller coasters and water rides, this year a new attraction called the “Mass Effect” video game series will appear at the renovated Action Theater featuring 4D effects and a live performance. Great America is still a center of amusement ride fun and frolic for the whole family.

Want to get out of town for a day? How about a trip south to wine country along California’s central coast? Despite this year’s deceptively arduous drought, relatively normal rainfall and welcomed lush greenery have winemakers in Paso Robles, Cambria and other coastal areas of the state experimenting with new ways for visitors to explore wine. From distilling spirits to a golf course through vineyards to local service projects for visitors to more deeply connect with the local community, there’s something for many wine lovers.

If you really want to get away even further and avoid the hassle of trekking to the major airports in San Jose, Oakland or SF, the Bay Area will be getting a 4th commercial airport. For those in Contra Costa county who remember the old municipal air field in Concord, for the first time since 1992 there will be 3 commercial flights between Concord’s Buchanan Airport and Burbank starting April 18 and one weekend flight between Concord and Las Vegas starting April 22. Both routes will be offered by private jet company JetSuite and include free wifi, snacks and drinks starting at just $109 each way.
