‘Marin, the Beautiful’ Tour: Full Itinerary
Create your own itinerary—focus on the sites that you find most enticing: walk down to and climb the hundred steps back up from the Point Bonita Lighthouse, which offers a view of San Francisco only cruise ships enjoy; visit the Marine Mammal Center, a few miles outside Sausalito, where you may see orphaned and injured sea lions and harbor seals being nursed back to health; discover Sausalito's historic Bay Model, an U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' scale-model of the hydraulic ecology of the entire Bay and Delta watersheds. Stroll through Tiburon, an affluent California town of unique shops, a wine-tasting room, and spectacular! Bay vistas. Take the guided tour of Frank Lloyd Wright's last masterpiece, the Marin County Civic Center, a truly innovative and important building in the history of American architecture. Afterwards it may be time for lunch in picturesque Olema or Pt. Reyes Station. Or feast on oysters (raw or barbequed) fresh out of beautiful Tomales Bay.
Afternoon is also a matter of options: hang out with surfers in picturesque Stinson Beach or "hidden" Bolinas. (We can observe the beautiful creatures of a tidepool, if we're there during low tide.) Enjoy 2 or 3 hours in the Point Reyes National Seashore wilderness area—its herd of tule elk, beaches or "Earthquake Trail". On a clear day, a drive out to the Point Reyes Lighthouse is definitely worthwhile, as it sits on a moonscape promontory you'll never forget. Alternatively, you may wish to a hike into the primeval redwood forest of Muir Woods. Throw in a stop for English beer in front of the fireplace at the medieval-styled Pelican Inn or a ferry across the Bay from Sausalito ...and you've had a very full day.
This represents an ambitious itinerary: in reality we'd have to select 2 or 3 foci for your day as travel in the beautiful countryside between these destinations takes considerable time--it's a big county.
