Marin County Vacations

Marin County lies just across the Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco. While it may be located at the less-famous end of the iconic bridge, Marin County vacations can be just as amazing as trips to the city. Families, couples, and single travelers will find lots to do in Marin County, especially if you like to spend time outdoors.

Major Attractions

Marin County car rentals are a must for this beautiful area. Start in Marin Headlands and explore the rest of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area before heading to Sausalito. While there, gaze across the bay at San Francisco, or take the ferry to Angel Island for a better view. Drive through Mill Valley to visit Muir Woods National Monument, then head up to Mount Tamalpais, or "Mount Tam" as it's known to locals. Find more coastal views at Stinson Beach and drive along Highway 1 to see the rugged beauty of California's northern coast. Continue on to Pt. Reyes National Park, a breathtaking peninsula known for great hiking and wildlife. If you have time, it's well worth it to check out Tiburon and the Marin Civic Center in San Rafael. The futuristic-looking bright blue building was designed by noted architect Frank Lloyd Wright and has been featured in films. Know your plan before you go— Marin County hotels can be pricey, so try to book in advance to get the best deals.
