Grant Avenue, in the city's historic Old Town, offers a helping of nostalgia with its quaint stores and one-of-a-kind boutiques. For a different kind of shopping experience, you might head to Rowland Boulevard's Vintage Oak Malls or hang fire for a local farmer's market to set up its delightfully colorful and fragrant stalls, each one filled to bursting with tempting goodies. With your shopping fix in the bag, you'll find an array of tempting options for dinner and drinks dotted along Highway 101.

Find a new favorite tipple in Novato

A glass or 2 of fine wine is likely to be on your bucket list during a stay in Novato. There's a popular tasting room in downtown, complete with a heated outdoor patio for cooler nights, although the city also plays host to the historic Pacheco Ranch Winery, where those with an appointment can tour the grand Italianate estate before enjoying handcrafted Cabernets. Of course, that's just for starters; Novato vacation rentals are typically within an hour's drive of the famed Napa Valley Wine Train. Traveling with kids? Skip the wine and head to Six Flags Discovery Kingdom instead, around 30 minutes from most rentals.

Choose a spring stay for a great deal in Novato

It never really gets all that cold in Novato; this is California, after all. Temperatures are at their highest between July and October, which coincides with the region's harvest season, making prices for rentals and wine tours that bit higher. If you're on the lookout for a great deal on a Novato vacation rental, stays in March, April, or May can be a good bet. You'll still be able to soak up the sun but you'll see the rates for pretty much everything come down a little and avoid the worst of the peak summer crowds.
