Approximately 200 nm northwest from San Jose is Shelter Cove, located along California's "lost coast." This remote area has a campground and bread and breakfasts located next to the runway.

Fun Places to Fly 

Favorite Places
Just getting up and flying in the air is fun.  But, it's even more fun to fly somewhere where you can have fun with family and friends.  Here are a few of my favorite destinations.
- Annual Father's Day Fly-in; campground; historic park
Half Moon Bay - Ocean views; walk to restaurants
Harris Ranch
- Steak lovers take note
- Walk to the beach; campground, motels
Shelter Cove - Beautiful coast; B&B and campground
South Lake Tahoe - Ski Heavenly! Only 5 minutes away by taxi.
