Now that you’re behind the wheel of your new Honda CR-V, Civic, or Pilot, it’s time to have some fun! The Bay Area boasts dozens of beautiful scenic driving routes, and here are a few that are sure to help you unwind after a week of commuting, family hauling, and errands.
Sir Francis Drake Boulevard
You’ll see a little bit of everything on your drive along Sir Francis Drake Boulevard. This scenic route begins in Marin, and you’ll encounter small towns, big redwoods, and lovely views en route to majestic coastal dunes, yellow sands, and a historic lighthouse at Point Reyes.
Wildcat Canyon Road
Heading south from Vallejo, you can get to Wildcat Canyon Road via I-80 or San Pablo Dam Road. This route takes you through Tilden Park and the Berkeley Hills while providing sweeping views of Berkeley and San Francisco. Be sure to stop at Inspiration Point and take it all in!
Highway 1 curves along the Pacific coastline for hundreds of gorgeous miles. The stretch just south of Pacifica is an especially fun one. Be sure to stop at spots like Mori Point, Gray Whale State Cove Beach, and Pigeon Point Lighthouse on your way to Natural Bridges State Beach in Santa Cruz.
Your new Honda will be good to go, but if you’re driving a vehicle you’ve owned for a while, make time to stop at Avery Greene Honda in Vallejo to get caught up on service before heading out on your scenic adventure!
