Great Getaways at Oracle OpenWorld

By: Oracle Staff


Are You Up for an Adventure?

There’s no such thing as downtime during Oracle OpenWorld. There are, however, the weekends—and we have a few ideas on how you can get the most from them during your stay in California.

You have your classic escapes to places like Yosemite, Lake Tahoe, Carmel, Big Sur, and Mendocino, as well as closer jewels like Point Reyes and Half Moon Bay.

But if your idea of downtime includes adventure, you might try ballooning in Napa Valley. While you’re there, you can also rent a bike and attend a harvest party. Because harvest is in full swing, your timing is impeccable.

Half-day trips include Point Bonita in the Marin Headlands, Muir Woods, the Chabot Space and Science Center, and San Francisco Bay sailing charters.

Finally, for a different kind of escape, there are always the movies. The Mill Valley Film Festival begins October 2, the final day of Oracle OpenWorld. Talk about timing—the world is truly your oyster.
