    Best places to visit in California during the winter

    I'm working in the Colorado Rockies until Mid-November and I was planning on visiting NorCal in the winter and I wandered what were some good places for travellers to check out. I've wanted to see Monterey, Eureka, and Arcata but I would love some more suggestions. I will be mostly hitching. Thanks!

    Living alone in wilderness but nearby civilisation
