Thinking about popping the question? Look no further than Northern California. It’s almost embarrassing how many phenomenal spots we have for an epic marriage proposal. From the mountains to the rivers, to the lakes or ocean, we have it all. Before you drop to one knee make sure to check out the perfect place. A marriage proposal is a big deal, so put a little thought into it. No pressure.
1. Stinson Beach
How about a picnic proposal? Pack a basket with all her favorites; wine, sandwiches, and don't forget the chocolates.
2. Palace of Fine Arts
San Francisco has numerous spots for an epic proposal. How about this one? A public proposal wins you big-time brownie points. Plus, you set the bar pretty high for your own kids to follow.
3. Baker Beach
You know what they say: Location. Location. Location. The Golden Gate Bridge is about as epic as a place gets. Make sure you bring your camera if you propose here. It would be a shot of a lifetime.
4. Hot Air Balloon Over Napa
How's your vertigo? If you love a gorgeous hot air balloon ride then this is your answer. A sky-high proposal is one for the record books.
5. Raley Field
Home of the Sacramento River Cats. If you're a couple who loves a good game and maybe dated around the boys of summer then this is your ticket to happiness. Talk to the powers that be and pop the question on the Jumbotron. Nothing more festive than a stadium cheering for your future marriage.
6. The State Fair
A view of the world as you promise her the world is about as romantic as you can get. Want to kick it up a notch...then time it right and get on that ride at sunset. Getting down on one knee is NOT an option here.
7. The Mission at Carmel
Do the two of you love history? Then an old mission will be the perfect backdrop for your forever promise. Built in 1770, this was where President Herbert Hoover was married.
8. Mariposa Grove
Yosemite has some incredible gems for popping the question. How about Mariposa Grove? If you're card carrying Northern California tree huggers, then you'll be in Redwood tree heaven.
Small town charm and big hearted opportunies await. Kayak along the shore and ask the most important question of your life.
10. Hidden Falls Regional Park
Hidden Falls Regional Park in Placer County is a phenomenal place to propose. This park opened in 2006 and includes seven miles of hiking trails and 1200 acres of places to get down on one knee. Your parents would approve!
