If you're looking for a quick getaway that includes scenic drives and delicious eats, this two-day trip up the California coastline from our friends at Spot is definitely for you.

North of San Francisco lies a stretch of California coastline that nobody ever tells you about. Locals play sly. And tourists? It rarely crosses their radar.

But it's road-trip country at its best, checking all the right boxes from secret beaches to neck-craning views to oysters sold right at the bayside farms growing them. It takes two leisurely days to complete this jaunt, but the region's laid-back vibes and unhurried pace will make those two feel like a week — at least. Start by crossing the Golden Gate Bridge, and you're well on your way.
