As most Northern Californians know, many people seem to think that California ends at San Francisco. It's easy to understand why people think this simply because our state is so large. In reality, there are nearly 400 miles of gorgeous coastal views and quaint little towns that stand between San Francisco and California's northern border. We hope to change this perception and are adding more information all the time, so keep checking back to see whats new.

Romantic Gifts for Him

by Jenny on September 20, 2012

I’ve always found it hard to choose gifts, let alone romantic gifts, for boyfriends and I don’t think that I’m the only one. I suppose in general woman want men to be more sophisticated than they really are which is why they make it a difficult quest to find the perfect gift when most men would settle for a remote control car.  A remote control car might not be a romantic gift but the average man does not care about pot plants and heart shaped chocolates from Switzerland. They don’t want tickets to see a dreamy play showing in theater but rather tickets to see their favorite sports team or the latest action movie. And in general, if he doesn’t wear designer button up shirts he’s not about to start liking them just because you bought him one.

However, if you really do feel the need for that anniversary gift to be romantic then there are some exceptions. Buy him that watch he’s been talking about and to add the romance, get it engraved with a personal message. An engraving, although not the most original idea, is an individual touch and that is a part of what romance is made of. In fact I believe that almost always, keeping it personal is the key to success. A year ago, when my husband was going through a rough patch and failing to express himself, I found a leather-bound journal with faded world maps on the inside of the covers (He loves maps) and I had an engraving put in the leather. Just the facts that I paid attention to his needs and his taste and added a personal detail made this simple gift a total success.

However, when it comes to new relationships sometimes it’s hard to be personal because after all you’re still getting to know each other. So if you are really stuck at what to get him, then lingerie is almost always a fail proof. Don’t be foolish by thinking it’s a daft idea because it’s a gift for yourself, because it isn’t. I assure you that a set of sexy underwear and maybe a massage is all the romance he wants. Truthfully though, whether you’re buying him a Leatherman, a computer game or a Lazy-boy he’s not even going to notice it isn’t romantic unless it’s briefs or socks.


The St. Bernard lodge

by Kelly on September 3, 2012

Open since 1929, the St.Bernard lodge located in Northern California is a great place for a romantic getaway, whether you’re looking for a fun filled holiday for your honeymoon or just a relaxed weekend getaway, away from the kids.

Situated conveniently close to both the Lassen Volcanic National park and Lake Almanor, 10 miles west of Chester, St.Bernard is an all season Bed and breakfast. This delightful inn, that offers boarding for horses, not only has a full service restaurant and friendly staff but also offers almost every kind of amenity you could ask for. With an outdoor spa tub, wireless internet, free local phone calls, a tavern with T.V and pool table, and equipment for outdoor games you’ll have everything for a relaxing vacation.

St. Bernard Lodge - Northern California Romantic PlacesFor those looking for a little more excitement, there’s access to miles of trails for mountain biking, hiking, four-wheeler riding and horseback riding. Local Lake Almanor also offers enjoyable water sports, such as water-skiing, jet-skiing and sailing.  In winter the snow also allows activities such as skiing, snow-shoeing and snowmobiling.

Being surrounded by acres of wood also makes this the ultimate location for bird watching and spotting wildlife and what better place to observe when sitting on the St. Bernard’s own deck that overlooks a trout pond and into a meadow.

While staying at St. Bernard lodge you could also make a visit to the remarkable Lassen Volcanic National Park that encloses all four types of volcano, boiling pools, mud-pots, steam vents and volcanic peaks.

But what will ultimately make your stay unique is not the location but rather the lodge it’s self. It’s the attention to detail that will win you over when they serve appetizers and wine in the afternoon and put complimentary robes and slippers in each room; does it get dreamier than that?

In addition a country style breakfast is served inclusive to your stay. The restaurant, however, also serves a variety of home-made meals for lunch and dinner at affordable prices and allows you to sit in a dining room with lace table-cloths; a small detail that adds to the old world feel of the whole inn. The touches that make this place feel, as it is, an historical sight: from the tavern with its dark-wood bar chairs to the dining room decorated with antiques, carries on into the classically styled rooms.

For a rejuvenating and relaxing holiday St. Bernard is the place to go.
