The North Cal locale has become a national travel destination, ranked as the top North American city to visit by the New York Times in 2012. It also recently claimed the title of the one of "America's Coolest Cities" by Forbes, thanks to its burgeoning restaurant scene, arts and culture and outstanding recreational opportunities.
