So many perks to this place we call home. We're just a short drive from beautiful beaches, awe-inspiring hikes and world-class wine producers. The food is stellar and the nightlife is eclectic. The South Bay continues to breed world-class artists and musicians—and the region's cultural venues regularly host thought-provoking speakers, inspiring exhibitions, top-notch theater and rocking live music.

As the El Niño winter gives way to sunnier skies, it's time to take advantage of all the amazing diversions at our fingertips. Check out a new band or enjoy one of your all-time favorite performers, explore nearby trails, recline on the sand, saddle up for equestrian excursion, sample locally produced pinot, ponder the human condition at a local black-box theater or take in the spectacle of a touring Broadway production.

The majority of the activities listed in this guide are within 60 miles of wherever the car is parked. So pack a day bag, get some wheels and prepare for another glorious summer in Silicon Valley.—Nick Veronin
