I used to live here. A sleepy little university town, with a unique personality - half burned out hippies, half dot com-ers coming in from the valley, and uh, half university students. I know that that's a lt of people, but whatever. A definite surfing spot if you're so inclined! If not, check out the Boardwalk, go on some rides, and han gout on the beach.

Just an hour's drive south of SF is one of the redwood parks. A truly awesome place with huge trees and good hiking possibilities. Definitely good for a day trip.
