Located north of San Francisco by way of the Golden Gate Bridge
, Marin County is a natural jewel. Not only is it home to Muir Woods'
majestic redwoods, Marin Headlands' rugged cliffs, and Mt. Tamalpais's
breathtaking trails and views, but it also boasts some of California's most beautiful shoreline. Brave the hairpin turns of Highway 1 for unbeatable views of the Pacific Ocean and spend the day exploring tucked away coastal spots such as Stinson Beach
, Bolinas, and Point Reyes National Seashore
Marin's towns encapsulate Northern Cali culture. Local, organic fare is more readily available than McDonald's, yoga studios outnumber movie theaters, and outdoorsy types walking their dogs are ubiquitous. While many tourists flock to the quaint, art- and souvenir-filled Sausalito
, other towns worth a visit are serene Mill Valley, Fairfax, and Tiburon, which all offer great dining, shopping, and relaxing vibes.
