    Hey all,

    I'm planning on taking my wife to Bodega Bay for our honeymoon and was looking for ideas. It's only going to be for 2 days and 1 night. I'm looking for a nice place to eat and somewhere that does wine tours/tasting.

    Thanks in advance

    Lot's of stuff in Bodega Bay...You'll stay busy. I like to drive 5 minutes inland to the town of Bodega...There's a cool bar called The Casino that does BBQ oysters outside. Some cool shops too. Enjoy!

    Lots of folks head over to Occidental for Italian food. I think the Union Hotel and Negri's are both pretty popular. You might be able to incorporate a stop on the way to or from Bodega Bay.

    My wife and I really enjoy the Tides, it is comfortable, has a huge window looking out over the bay, and is not expensive. You do feel like you are an aristocrat eating there. We like it and always ask for a window seat. It has been about a year since we have been there, even though it is only 20 for home.

    Also, the Lucas Wharf is not very good and is expensive, but there is a small deli Clam Chowder store in the corner of their parking lot that has great bread bowls full of chowder that is perfect to take on a picnic.

    Do not stop at the deli that is past these two place on the right overlooking the bay, it may be the place that Birds was filmed at, but it is really bad!

    There are a lot of nice small beaches that are past bodega and don't be afraid of going to Jenner and farther to explore there is a lot of land and places to see.

    Fort Ross is another place that is nice to stop at too. This is north of bodega about an hour I think.

    A place to see is also the bodega head, it is on the other side of the bay from all the restaurants and is open to the ocean, there can be really big waves and it is a nice (windy) place to see.


    If you have any more questions about the area let me know and I will try to help you if needed.
