Escape the Summer Heat: A Visual Tour of Bodega Bay, San Francisco Bay Area’s Coastal Gem

If you are in the Bay Area or Sacramento and are seeking to escape the summer heat and cool off, while enjoying some coastal views and delicious oysters then my recommendation is to head to Bodega Bay.

Enjoy the views of the San Francisco skyline as you cross the iconic Richmond Bridge, where you will embark on an adventure that includes scenic coastlines, delicious lunch, and a visit to the Potter schoolhouse, made famous by Alfred Hitchcock’s classic film “The Birds.” We’ll end our day with a breathtaking spectacle of fog rolling in from San Francisco, creating a mystical ambiance over the water. So get your playlist ready for the 2 hour journey to Bodega Bay!
