To celebrate the centennial of AAA's Via Magazine, they created a list of 100 of the Best Travel Ideas in the West, and three of our local Santa Rosa and Sonoma County favorites have been included!
"Sip some suds in Santa Rosa, Calif., recently named the Microbrew Capital of the United States. Russian River Brewing Company makes Pliny the Younger, a rare triple IPA that draws crowds for its release each February."
"Hang out with giraffes at Safari West, a 400-acre African wildlife preserve near Santa Rosa, Calif. Safari riders have been known to get friendly licks on the face from the 20-foot tall beasts."
"Sit on the craggy cliffs of Bodega Head near Bodega Bay, Calif., and watch waves hit the rocks as whales travel north, March to June."
