1,012 bytes added, 18 July
{{pagebanner|Wikitravel North Bay (Bay Area) Banner.jpg}}The '''North Bay''' of the [[San Francisco]] [[Bay Area (California)|Bay Area]] lies north of the Golden Gate Bridge. It is probably best -known as for being the home of [[Napa Valley]], America's largest wine producing region, and for [[Marin County]], which is a forested, coastal area. It is the northernmost part of the Bay Area.
* [[Forestville]]

==Other destinations==
* '''[[Point Reyes National Seashore]] - '''. From its thunderous ocean breakers crashing against rocky headlands and expansive sand beaches through its open grasslands to its brushy hillsides and forested ridges, visitors can discover over 1000 species of plants and animals. Home to several cultures over thousands of years, Point Reyes preserves a tapestry of stories and interactions of people.
The name "North Bay" comes from its location in the north of the [[San Francisco Bay Area]] and separates it from the [[East Bay]] and the [[South Bay]], which are each on their respective sides of the San Francisco/San Pablo Bay.
==Get in==
* You can spend a day exploring '''Point Reyes National Seashore''' (see [[North Bay (Bay Area)#Other destinations|other destinations]] section for more about Point Reyes)
==Get out==
* On the other side of the Golden Gate Bridge is, of course, '''[[San Francisco]]''', one of the world's most popular tourist destinations.
* Also to the south — but in a more southeasterly direction than San Francisco — is the [[East Bay]], which has scenery that is quite similar to the [[North Bay]], especially south of [[Livermore]] and around Mount Diablo. Some of the East Bay, like Napa Valley, is wine country.
