Don’t let the brisk winds and cold temperatures of winter in Vallejo stop you from experiencing this time of year. There are plenty of fun California winter destinations to experience, especially here in the San Francisco Bay Area. Here are some of our favorites.

Mammoth Mountain

A half-day’s drive east of Vallejo in the direction of Yosemite National Park will bring you to Mammoth Mountain. This snow-covered peak is a fantastic skiing destination and a truly wondrous sight to behold this time of year. In fact, the entire Inyo National Forest that surrounds it is picturesque in winter, making the drive as enjoyable as the destination.

Napa and Sonoma

A destination that’s a bit closer to home, California’s famous wine country is just a short drive from Vallejo. Although you can visit these vineyards any time of year, why should you wait until winter? Because all the tourists stay home and locals often have the tasting rooms all to themselves!

True, you won’t be able to sit outside and sip your Chardonnay under the warm summer sun, but the world-class wine tastes just as good in winter as it does any other time of the year.

Now that winter is arriving and our warm California weather is changing to chilly coastal gusts, make sure your car is ready. Bring your Honda SUV or car to Avery Greene Honda for a winter maintenance checkup by our service team.
