The best of everything Northern California has to offer

A mere 30 miles east of downtown San Francisco, suburban Concord is the perfect base for exploring Northern California. A centrally located Concord vacation rental puts you a short drive from the top city sights, as well as world-class vineyards, jaw-dropping forests, and pristine coastal beaches. Closer to home, you'll find everything from picturesque hiking trails to lively amusement parks. Even better, there's a BART stop in town, so you can leave the car behind when you hit the town (which is especially handy if you're sampling the wines).

Things to do

Redwoods, red wines, and red bridges

The heart of Concord life centers around Todo Santos Plaza, where you'll find everything from farmers' markets to free summer concerts. Hundreds of world-class wineries are a short drive away in Napa Valley and Sonoma Country (maybe leave the driving to the professional tour operators). Nature lovers won't want to miss the towering trees of Redwood National Park or the sandy beaches dotting the rocky Pacific coast. Hop the BART to downtown San Francisco for some of the world's best sightseeing, including the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, and Fisherman's Wharf.

Activities

An outdoor paradise a stone's throw from the city

While all the sights of San Francisco are on your doorstep, it would be a mistake to overlook the fresh air and nature closer to home. Mt. Diablo is popular for its picturesque hiking and biking trails, while Waterworld USA and Pixieland Amusement Park offer hours of fun for both the young and young-at-heart. You can also shoot nine holes at Diablo Creek Golf Course or take in a concert at Concord Pavilion. When you're done with all that, it's worth it to venture further afield to experience the wineries of Napa and Sonoma, and the beautiful beaches along the Pacific coast.

Weather

Welcome to the temperate zone

Locals will tell you that Northern California has the best weather in the country, and after one visit to Concord you just might agree. A Concord vacation rental offers a change of pace from brutal winters, with temperatures from November to May only rarely dropping below 50. Summers are breezy and mild, with the mercury hovering in the 70s and 80s during the day from June through October. November to April is the wet season, though rainfalls are still well below the national average. Unless you venture to the mountains, you're unlikely to see snow.

Natural features

A rolling land of hills and valleys

A centrally located Concord vacation rental will put you in a residential oasis of rolling hills and valleys, with a healthy sprinkling of public parks mixed in. Towering above the town at just over 3,800 feet is Mt. Diablo, which offers forested trails that are ideal for hiking, biking, or just taking in the scenery. Further afield, you'll find everything from soaring redwood forests to picturesque vineyards, plus some of the state's most beautiful beaches tucked into the rocky nooks and crannies of the breathtaking Pacific coast.
