Another lovely alternate route to the Coast Guard House is to drive beneath the steep-sided sun-baked hills of the Dry Creek Valley where some of the very best Zinfandel grapes are grown. To reach the sublime Dry Creek region, continue north on Highway 101 and drive west on Dry Creek Valley Road through stunning vineyards, past Lake Sonoma, on to Annapolis and then north on Highway 1 to Point Arena.
These routes tend to take a little longer, but the excellent wine tasting and scenic beauty more than make up for it.
