A very long list is possible. WIth the fires at the moment, some of them may not be accessible and the smoke may be a problem.
South of SF is Santa Cruz, the Monterey Bay area including Carmel, and Big Sur (where there are fires at the moment). In normal weather the coast is absolutely beautiful, and towns like Santa Cruz and Carmel are charming, but the coastal area can be foggy in summer.
North of San Francisco the Napa-Sonoma and adjacent wine growing region is on most people's tourism lists: Charming towns like St. Helena with lots of wineries to visit and sample their products. The coast north of SF is spectacular all the way to the Oregon border, including the Redwoods north of Eureka.
East of SF into the Sierras and Cascades to places north like Mt. Shasta and Lassen Volcanic National Park then south to Yosemite--fantastic scenery. Drive California 49, the Gold Rush highway through the gold mining towns. Again there is a problem with fires at the moment, and the valley area between SF and the mountains gets really hot in summer.
Just a sampler of the region. Get a good guide book for many more suggestions.

Northern California is time-commemorated for its attractiveness and farming acceptance. Day journeys in northern California can take place fairly lots everywhere, yet between the main accepted information on a thank you to work out the north is via taking a coastal rigidity down highway a hundred and one. California day journeys for drivers and ocean fanatics will actually fill an afternoon. in case you have on no account pushed this iconic stretch of highway, plan a California holiday enjoying Ferndale, Humboldt, and all of the different large cities and seashores alongside the way. For the main area, highway a hundred and one is acceptable enjoyed throughout the time of the hotter months, yet you need to have no worry navigating the line all three hundred and sixty 5 days long.
