I second, third, and fourth this... easily reachable, and completely different than the coast around SD... some of the most beautiful scenery in the nation!Have you ever been to the central Coast? Near San Luis Obispo, Pismo Beach, etc? Its beautiful here this time of year, and lots of outdoors stuff you can do. San Francisco is always fun, or if you have the time to make it up to the northern part of California (Humboldt/Eureka area) , that is always beautiful (I'm a little biased because that is where I am from).
kinda crazy request but is there anywhere to shoot bald eagles that is near?
or near ish
Lake Tahoe is a beautiful place. And your right, the drive from the SF bay area is about 2.5 hours. I was in Tahoe a few weeks ago for my bachelor party, i brought my camera, but it wasn't really the time to go take photos, lol.Hi Peter
I went to San Francisco a couple of years ago for 10 days. During that time we were taken up to Lake Tahoe for 3 days. I would dearly like to go back there as it's a beautiful place. Saw some eagles there too.
The landscape up there is stunning with plenty of scope for photography.
I think it was about 2½ - 3 hour drive from SF although we weren't in a hurry.
In case it's important for the topic creator...And your right, the drive from the SF bay area is about 2.5 hours.
