Pack your favorite treats and board the Blue & Gold Fleet ferry from San Francisco, or rent a kayak from Sea Trek in Sausalito and paddle the three-mile journey yourself. Thirteen miles of hiking trails and eight more of paved paths (if you want to bring your bikes along) await once you disembark. For a picture-perfect picnic spot, hike to the top of Mount Livermore (the island’s highest peak) and you’ll be greeted by the ultimate 360° view.

If you’re really looking to get away from it all for spring break, consider heading to the Sierras for some serious slope action, local brews, and live music at WinterWonderGrass’ Tahoe festival. This festival offers three days of music including California craft beer sampling and a 3-day ski pass option. Even if you can only get away for one day, single day passes are available.
