Just an hour north of San Francisco, across the Golden Gate Straight is the West Marin Coast — a natural forest parkland with pristine coastal wilderness. The Marin Headlines have a sprawling view of the Golden Gate Bridge and the 1855 Point Bonita Lighthouse. The West Coast’s only national seashore features unspoiled coastline with a stirring wildlife that includes elk, gray whales and a variety of birds that have peacefully coexisted with locals dating back to the early settlements of the Miwok Indians. Visitors can pay homage to the Muir Woods National Monument, a cathedral of redwood trees that’s truly a must-see destination. Noted as one of the “Most Beautiful Places in America”, the temperate climate and beautiful landscape is the idyllic escape from the bustle of the big city. For those looking for a little more, the Downtown San Rafael is home to a state-designated arts and cultural district with a wide range of exhibits, galleries, restaurants and book readings. From the natural reserves to world-class dining, West Marin Coast truly has something for everyone.
