2. Learn new things at museums.
NorCal residents are lucky to be near plenty of academic and intellectual hubs, so world-famous museums are not a rarity here. Check out the California Academy of Sciences, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Exploratorium, and more.
3. Adopt a pet.
NorCal has some of the best nature the U.S. has to offer. We're sure there's an adorable bundle of fur waiting to accompany you on your grand adventures here.
4. Visit the Golden Gate Bridge.
This monument represents California's openness to people of all different backgrounds. If you're a NorCal resident, you should definitely make the trip to visit at some point in your life.
5. Soak up the culture and diversity.
Since you're lucky enough to live in one of the most diverse states in the country, why not take advantage of the opportunity to learn about other cultures? Try different cuisines, meet new people, and enjoy just how diverse and open our Golden State is.
6. Get an education.
In order to have a great job, you need to get a great education. It could even be community college. And luckily for you, Northern California has some of the best schools in the country.
7. Visit Yosemite National Park.
This world-famous national park has earned its reputation as a seriously gorgeous destination. Set aside some time to take your family on a trip to see Half Dome, El Capitan, Yosemite Falls, and all the other beautiful sights.
