Where to Take Your Grandma in NorCal
If you're itching for a trip to the West Coast but don't think Grandma would enjoy the AL Playoff madness in Oakland or wouldn't like the winos in Napa who think that "Sideways" was the best movie ever, take her over the river, through the woods and into the mountains to tiny Boonville, CA for a respite.
Enjoy the lush forests, sample the products of the Anderson Valley wine district and see if you can master Boontling, the area's own 19th century folk language.
Cat lovers should check out the quaint Boonville Hotel for its charming, airy rooms and simple but tasty breakfasts, which you can enjoy outside in the garden with the hotel cat. Just make sure Grammy isn't allergic.
