Yosemite and the redwoods. I prefer the Calaveras Big Trees redwoods and the Mendocino redwoods. In Mendocino you can camp on the beach under a redwood tree, hard to beat that.

LOL!

Charles had the right idea mentioning food places:
Tartine Bakery in San Francisco
La Super Rica in Santa Barbara
Thai food is best on the west coast

and then the usual suspects for scenery and ambience:
Yosemite
The Redwoods
Big Sur
San Diego County beaches
Santa Barbara
Hearst Castle
wineries
Gold Country
