We now live in the San Francisco Bay Area. We will be moving away in a few months, so it makes sense to treat this remaining time as "slow travel," even though we've been here for a long time.
There are a lot of interesting things to do here - nearby mountains, beaches, and parks. The drives can be an activity of themselves, with beautiful scenery all around.
The larger cities in the area are San Jose and San Francisco. Both have museums, theatre, and music.
