All the better, then, that it leads to Santa Cruz, arguably one of the most scenic sun-and-surf towns in the state. You’ll love it there and so will your dog, given all the fun activities you can do together. more »

Wineries, Pumpkins and Vacaville, Oh My!

There’s no time better than October to visit the Suisun Valley between Davis and Vacaville in Solano County. Not only are the vineyards ablaze; pumpkin patches, farm stands and other agricultural points of interest are in full swing. (Don’t miss Larry’s Produce, a vast produce enterprise with adjacent pumpkin patch.) 

The valley is just a ridge away from the famous Napa Valley, and its wines share many characteristics native to the shared climate. Suisun bills itself as “rustic wine country” and prides itself on providing friendly welcomes to visitors with dogs on the other end of the leash. more »

But the county is in fact large and diverse, encompassing inland redwood forests, dozens of mountain wineries and almost as many microclimates where you and your canine companion can sip and chill (wine for you, water for your pup!). more »

The county’s 11 diverse appellations each express a style of their own, and while you can hardly sample them all in a weekend, you can choose an itinerary along one of the county’s “wine roads.”  more »
