The Travel Agent Destination Guide is the locals guide to places worth knowing in Northern California and beyond. By focusing on local destinations with character, charm, and a bit of history we’re here to share the must-sees, must-do’s, must tastes, and must much-mores.
Best Drinking & Dining
The foodies guide to the most delectable local places to eat, drink, and be merry. Along with the background story of the destination and why we love it, you’ll find inside tips on their signature dishes, coveted drinks, and other "must tries".
Trails, Beaches, & More
There’s nothing quite like the great outdoors to revive your spirit. Whether it’s the uninterrupted line of sight to the horizon across the ocean, or the barely visible tops of the giant Redwoods. The outdoors are massive and breathtaking each in their own unique way. And, have the power to put all of life’s daily gripes into perspective. Sweat the trek, not the small stuff.
Towns & Cities
Every place has a story to tell, and your experience is always richer for knowing it. Get to know the lay of the land through our whirlwind tours. Whether it’s a village, town, or city, one thing is for sure, and it’s that no two are alike. They all have their own unique history, architecture, and culture waiting to be discovered.
Best Local Businesses
We seek to support the places that define local culture. Be it a tiny taqueria with fantastic al pastor tacos, a hole-in-the-wall cafe, or a funky tap room with a great beer list. These are the kinds of places that if you've been there, you get the T-shirt. That shirt becomes a source of pride, capturing a memorable experience, and a badge that identifies you as part of an in-the-know crowd. It's also a way to support the places you love.
