From San Francisco:

This street will change names to Bodega Avenue, Valley Ford Road, and eventually merge to become Highway One. Continue westward to Bodega Bay following Highway One as it turns northward along the coast. Anchor Bay is 4 miles north of Gualala. Look for our big sign on Highway One. Expect a lot of winding road, but there still is no better or faster or more beautiful route. It takes about 2 3/4 hours by sportscar from the Golden Gate Bridge to Anchor Bay. Add time for RVs, scenery, and lunch.
