The Quiet Fishing Town Near San Francisco That Seems Frozen In Time

The San Francisco Bay and its surrounding areas are full of hidden gems worthy of a quick road trip. Take a coastal ride out of San Francisco and head north toward Bodega Bay. This is a wonderful day trip, and the drive is beautiful as well. If you take the historic 101 you’ll be in Bodega Bay in 1.5 hours—and you won’t be disappointed. You’ll be pleasantly surprised by the fishing opportunities in Bodega Bay, as well as the beauty, uniqueness, and culture—which all feels refreshingly frozen in time. And if you’re a Hitchcock fan, this town is definitely worth a stop.
