California’s Gold Country has both deep history (thanks to the prospectors) and impressive natural features, like Calaveras Big Trees State Park and Moaning Cavern, the biggest cavern in the Golden State. But it also has a thriving wine scene. Explore the wineries that give this part of the Golden State its own flavor—especially in the quaint town of Murphys, which is dotted with welcoming tasting rooms.  For a unique place to stay, check out Querencia, a secret-hideaway-style inn overlooking vineyards and the Sierra foothills.
