As much pride as we take in our gorgeous scenery, world-class restaurants and general awesomeness, sometimes you just gotta get outta Dodge--and we've got suggestions for weekend getaways from San Francisco . While SF's less-than-balmy summers provide plenty of motivation for a weekend getaway in the sun, these ideas--from camping in Yosemite to wine tasting in Napa--are perfect for a little escapism any time of year.

If you like wine country, but sipping wine and soaking in mineral pools is more your speed than parties on houseboats, then this is the weekend getaway for you. The resort has an amazing spa, award-winning restaurant and easy access to Sonoma and Napa wineries.
A few hours south of SF, this coastal beauty boasts dramatic ocean views perfect for a romantic tryst. Take advantage of the moderate weather by wandering around the quaint village shops or playing a round of golf. This is the epitome of R&R.
Hikers and campers, this one's for you. Home of Half Dome, Yosemite Falls and more than 1,200 square miles of valleys, meadows and ancient sequoia forests, this national park is a true gem worthy of the five-hour drive from San Francisco.
