Staycation in the Bay Area - where would YOU go shooting?

I moved about 3 years ago from a city right by the Bay to one about 30 mins east of San Francisco. Since then my photography outings have gone way down. I have actually shot more in Death Valley and Oregon than I have locally since then. I want to take a staycation (due to all this Covid stuff, and not travel anywhere) and get back to some local areas to shoot.

Only criteria:

Landscape/scenery type shooting

Probably a weeklong  timeframe, blank slate for shooting each day.  Thinking March or April

Sunrise is out, unless its very local to me (think Dublin/Pleasanton area)

Somewhere < 2 hours from San Francisco

I have done the bridges to death (Bay and GG) but don't mind going back there for a sunset.

Where would you locals go? Or even non-locals? Where would you spend some of your days/evenings shooting?

Curious to see what others would do. Looking for inspiration
