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 Kents had purchased the land to preserve its beauty and restful wilderness. Early in the 20th century, the couple donated the land to the federal government, intending to protect it for future generations.
With a million visitors per year, Muir Woods is the world’s most-visited redwood park. Just a 30-minute drive from San Francisco, the accessible park makes it possible to experience a unique natural wonder and return to the city in time for lunch.
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 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.
