Across the Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco lies the beautiful Marin County. Living here isn’t like life in other suburbs. Far from being a collection of bedroom communities, Marin County’s breathtaking towns like Bolinas, Sausalito, and Mill Valley have plenty of world-class cuisine, the great outdoors, art and culture of their own.
Marin County is truly a nature-lovers paradise. Mill Valley is home to the Muir Woods National Monument, a storybook forest of old-growth redwoods. The massive Coast Redwoods are sure to bring out the wide-eyed kid in anyone who spends a day hiking in their shade. You can go camping in Mount Tamalpais State Park, which offers some trails of its own and views of the East Bay.
Sausalito is a particularly picturesque city, nestled between the bay and a hilly park known as the Marin Headlands, which is part of Golden Gate National Recreation Area. Sausalito has some fantastic restaurants including Avatar’s unique Asian/Mexican/Mediterranean fusion, Le Garage’s French fare, and the incredible seafood and views of Scoma’s. Bird lovers across the Bay Area flock to the Sausalito every year, to watch a point on the Marin Headlands known as Hawk Hill. Thousands of eagles, hawks, and other raptors migrate past every year.
Bolinas is a peaceful, funky place. Its famous Free Box, a place in town where residents leave and take items without any money changing hands, captures the town’s independent spirit. Like all of Marin County, the outdoors is close at hand. Hike the incredibly scenic Palomarin Trailhead to Alamere Falls, go fishing on Bass Lake, or hit the Bolinas Beach. Locals try to tear down signs to keep the tourists away, and when you live here, you’ll understand why
