One of the best cities in the World. There is far too much to list with things to see and do and you could spend a lifetime seeking it all out. Food is a huge attraction and it showcases all that Northern California has to offer with many options. The Arts, whether it’s music on stage or in a gallery are World-class and doesn't get much better. The natural beauty of the Bay Area is the best attraction and worth spending as much time in it as you can.

The quaint town along Highway 1 driving through the Point Reyes National Seashore on your way to Stinson or Bolinas Beaches and Tomales Bay. A great spot to get picnic supplies or eat at one of the restaurants. Cowgirl Creamery serves up award-winning cheeses. Stop by Bovine Bakery for house-made baked goods and coffees. Another spot is the Old Western Saloon for a drink at the Historic old-time watering hole. Don’t forget to look for the famous Tule Elk! Travel note: one of the only gas stations in West Marin.

This is our go to place when we are in the mood for good Asian foods. The non touristy chinatown in San Francisco. Lots of restaurants specializing in Dim sum, Pho and other popular foods. I recommend New May Wah market for everything Asian. There is a farmers market on Sundays. Restaurant recommendations: Chili House, Good Luck Dim Sum, Xiao Long Bay, Shabu Club.

Mountain bikes were born here and one of the best places to ride as well. There are many trails in Marin County with different levels of riding skill to choose from. I recommend the old railroad grade on Southern Mt Tam, being a former train route it has a gradual accent with amazing views along the way.

Sailing, my personal favorite. San Francisco bay is considered one of the worlds best places to sail or race, a bucket list region for all sailors. The bay offers dramatic views with tons of sea life from our famous sea lions to humpback whales. Racing the bay is the best with races everyday of the week in the summer plus a lot during the winter too. A good resource for Bay Area sailing information can be found online at Latitude 38.

The new Smart train service that runs from Larkspur (Larkspur landing) to Healdsburg. A very good way to take a day trip North to wine country.

This state-of-the-art facility owned by Grateful Dead member Bob Weir hosts top-billing headliners. A big plus is that it’s still small enough to be right there in front with the band! A full service bar and restaurant too.

City/town information
This is a little cool and funky coastal town just North of Stinson beach off of Highway 1. A good place for cold water surfing and its beach views. The community is famous for its reclusive residents tearing down all signs pointing the way to its town so you might drive past the turn off if you don't follow a map closely.
