What, you say? How is that even possible? We're the first one to tell you: it's all because it's supposed to happen – that's about all We've got BUT We're so damn proud we're just bursting at the seams! The long story short is: our Founder started a conversation with a writer, Dave Carpenter, who specializes in writing about cannabis and entrepreneurs. Once the conversation got "rolling" it became a discussion about writing an article on Cannabis Tourism and ... now we're published in Forbes! Here's a link:

Bay Area Cannabis Tours

When you're visiting the San Francisco Bay Area and you're looking for something to do besides the Sonoma Wine Tours or the Napa Wine Tours then you need to check out the Bay Area cannabis tours which are running in Northern California. Whether you want to try infused wine or cannabis infused foods or prefer a more traditional wine tour, the cannabis scene in Northern California is worth exploring and Bay Area cannabis tours offer a lot!

Bay Area Wine and Weed ToursNot every Cannabis Tour is a Party Bus

In fact there are many events you can attend, ranging from puff-and-paint events to cannabis cooking lessons. If wine tastings are your thing, we recommend Happy Travelers Tours and the “Wine-and-Weed Only” Tour, which explores the convergence of wine and weed in Napa and Sonoma Counties.

Or, if you're looking for something more Romantic, we recommend the "Sip-and-Sniff" Sunset Tour, which heads from Santa Rosa through the West Sonoma County hills to reach the beautiful Sonoma Coast and famous Bodega Head. After stopping at a dispensary, we'll head out to enjoy a catered meal and watch the sunset!

Not every Cannabis Tour is a Cannabis Tour

Weed Vacation Packages

Let's talk about Weed Vacation Packages!

As cannabis legalization continues to spread across the country and globally, a new type of vacationing has been gaining momentum: cannabis travel destinations, where guests can get in some much-needed rest and relaxation time without giving up their cannabis. Nowadays, you’ll find weed vacation packages in areas where cannabis has been legalized for recreational use and is better established.

For example, in Sonoma and Napa, California, legalization in 2016 resulted in a flourishing cannabis-tourism industry that went beyond dispensary tours and fully embraced the cannabis culture of The Grape State. You can find tours like Wine and Weed led by our team at Happy Travelers, as well as various cannabis-friendly Bed and Breakfasts.

You can also enjoy the amazing and unique CBD-Infused High Tea Experience from Happy Travelers Tours on a Daily Basis!

For more info on cannabis vacation packages specifically for Sonoma, please email us at [email protected] or download your copy of the Ultimate Cannabis Vacation Planning Guide

Are Cannabis Vacations Legal?

Cannabis or ‘weed’ vacations are legal in California and states that have legalized cannabis for recreational adult-use use. For a complete list of states where cannabis is legal please read Where is Weed Legal Now.

Note: You are more likely to find established destinations in states where adult-use has been legalized for 2+ years.

What makes a Ganja Getaway Package the best? Destination, location and activities!

When choosing a location for your cannabis-inclusive  vacation, you’ll want to find an area that is lush with activities and weed. We absolutely recommend the Sonoma County area of Northern California for a variety of reasons!

Here’s a few:

  1. There is a large selection of cannabis dispensaries in the area.
  2. Happy Travelers Tours can take you to cannabis farms where you can learn, see, and touch cannabis plants!
  3. There’s a multitude of amazing restaurants and quick-eats in the city of Sonoma as we are known as a Food and Wine Hub.
  4. Sonoma County is also highly recognized as one of the best locations in the U.S.A. for its amazing breweries!
  5. Looking for a more scenic route? Northern California is home to numerous rivers and beaches, a favorite of nature-lovers from all over!

As for lodging in the area there are various Bed and Breakfasts right in the heart of Sonoma. If you’re looking to opt for a larger resort, be sure to check out Sonoma Mission Inn and Spa, both can be found centrally.

If you’re staying in Napa, we highly recommend The Archer Hotel, located in the lively city  downtown Napa. 

For visitors of Santa Rosa, we suggest the Hyatt Santa Rosa or, if you’re ballin’ on a budget, we also recommend The Hampton Inn.

Brewery Tours and Weed – What a Combination!

Per our good friends at Yelp, there are at least 53 Breweries, Brew Pubs or Micro Breweries in Sonoma County, Napa County and Marin County. 53 places where Beer is King. Which means Marijuana is Queen! And it means Brewery Tours, along with Wine Tours, are a thing!

Beer and Weed!

Sonoma County Beer is a rising star on the North Coast with breweries from Lagunitas to Russian River Brewing Company being a couple of notables. So, what happens when a bunch of folks have been drinking beer on a beautiful Sonoma County day? Well, if they're like so many people we know, they step 'outside' and have a smoke. And, sometimes they're smoking weed.

Stoned? You bet. Whether it was all the good Pale Ale or the outstanding Indica (or Sativa), an afternoon of touring Breweries often ends up with people being stoned, so, what happens then?

Beer, Food and Weed – the perfect trifecta! What could be better than an afternoon filled with drinking good brews, eating great food and enjoying a hit or two of Sonoma County's finest locally grown ganja. happy travelers weed cannabis tours

So, how do you enjoy all this safely? Get yourself on a Tour! Beer, Wine and Weed tours are available through Happy Travelers Tours. To take a #HTTTour just give us a call! 707-386-9859. Or Book Now!
