Northern California

Hello! California Destination Management

Taking time to reset, rejuvenate, and refresh is always a good way to get your group back on their A-game or relieve the stress from a job well done. From the Twin Peaks to Tahoe and Sacramento to Sonoma, experiencing the windswept, rugged beauty of Northern California may be just the refresher your guests need.

San Francisco is a hub of excitement and the cultural, commercial, and financial heart of Northern California. The city is famous for its restaurants and some of the best chefs in the country. Walk the Golden Gate Bridge, ride a Cable Car, chow down on clam chowder at Fisherman’s Wharf, wind your way up and down Lombard Street, or escape to Alcatraz. There are so many options of things to do, we can keep your guests busy every minute of their stay!

Looking for something more chill than San Francisco? Soak in the high-mountain splendor of Lake Tahoe, the spectacular mix of beaches and bluffs around Half Moon Bay, or swing by the Lone Cypress on the Monterey coast—one of the most photographed trees in North America. Take a spin around Silicon Valley and visit the Intel Museum or walk around Google’s campus and take photos of its quirky art. 

Hello! California (Northern) can help you narrow down the endless options of things to do here and create experiences beyond your imagination. Just say Hello!.
