A Tree Lover’s Monument. People do not just visit Muir Woods. They come from round the globe to pay homage to nature in this cathedral of old-growth coastal redwoods. The trees range from 600 to 1200 years old, and they tower up to 250 feet tall. Flat, easy trails loop through the groves. Muir Woods National Monument was established in 1908 when President Roosevelt signed legislation to protect an old-growth coast redwood forest from destruction.
Beneath the redwood trees, California bay laurel and Douglas fir grow. The forest floor is covered in sorrel, ferns, fungi, duff, and debris. Several bridges cross Redwood Creek, which flows through the park year-round. Wildlife residents include endangered coho salmon fingerlings, Pacific wrens, pileated woodpeckers, hawks, owls, eagles, deer, chipmunks, skunks, river otters, bobcats, and squirrels to name a few.
Sausalito is a unique and picturesque community, perched on a hillside between the San Francisco Bay and the Marin Headlands. Sausalito includes a historic downtown, yacht harbors thick with white masts, restaurants and hotels built out over the water, unique shops, original art galleries, and grand promenades with Views of the San Francisco cityscape.

Muir Woods

When John Muir learned that William and Elizabeth Kent were naming a redwood forest near San Francisco in his honor, he declared, “This is the best tree-lovers monument that could possibly be found in all the forests of the world.” The couple had purchased the land to preserve its beauty and restful wilderness. Early in the 20th century, the Kents donated the land to the federal government, intending to protect it in perpetuity.

With a million visitors per year, Muir Woods is the world’s most-visited redwood park. Since it’s just a 30-minute drive from San Francisco, visitors to the city can drive here, experience a little of California’s unique natural beauty, and be back in time for lunch. The park is just as much a San Francisco icon as the Golden Gate Bridge or the cable cars.

Sausalito

Sausalito takes its name for the saucelitos, little willow trees 18th century Spanish explorers found growing along its streams. Sausalito is a small town of only 7,500 residents, best known for its spectacular waterfront views. It’s a quiet, charming town that some say reminds them of the Mediterranean.

Tiburon by the Bay

Tiburon is a small historic town in Marin County, located across the bay from San Francisco. Tiburon’s Main Street has been preserved as it was when the town was a Gold Rush train town and lumber yard. The scenic Ark Row shops are actually housed in turn-of-the-century boathouses that were converted into homes and shops when the lagoon between the Tiburon peninsula and the neighboring island of Belvedere was filled in.

Angel Island

Angel Island State Park, the largest island in the San Francisco Bay offers some of the best views of the surrounding Bay Area. With great hiking trails and many other recreational opportunities readily available, Angel Island is truly a hidden gem in the midst of the urban Bay Area.
