    Muir Woods Back to Top

    Muir Woods

    Muir Woods is located 17 miles northwest of San Francisco just off Highway 1. The park was named after naturalist John Muir who was instrumental in establishing the National Park system. This National Monument is made up of over 560 acres of redwood forest. Cathedral and Bohemian Groves contain the largest Coast redwoods – up to 252 feet tall and 14 feet across. The park is home to 50 species of birds, black-tailed deer, steelhead trout and hundreds of other "wild inhabitants."

    U.S. Congressman William Kent and his wife Elizabeth had purchased the land to preserve its beauty and restful wilderness, and in 1908 they donated it to the federal governent to protect it from development. President Theodore Roosevelt declared Muir Woods the 10th national monument on January 9, 1908.

    Visitors are invited to explore the paved main trail which offers educational exhibits on the majestic redwood trees– some known to be 1,000 years old. There are six miles of walking trails and no cars are allowed in the redwood grove.

    Cool, shaded and moist year round, the park opens at 8am, 365 days a year, though closing time varies seasonally. Daytime temperatures at Muir Woods average between 40 and 70 degrees Farenheit. Be prepared for rain if visiting the park from October to May.

    Inside the park are a visitor center, cafe and gift shop which open at 9am. The cafe features locally sourced, organic foods and the gift shop specializes in locally and sustainably made redwood gifts, Native American jewelry and other classic souvenirs.

    Roads to the park are steep and winding. Vehicles over 35 feet long are prohibited. Tours to Muir Woods are popular as parking space is very limited and fills quickly on most days. There are no RV parking facilities.

    Sausalito Back to Top

    Sausalito

    Eight miles north of San Francisco across the bay is a tiny bayside community named Sausalito, meaning Little Grove of Willows. Arrival by ferry is the best way to experience this Mediterranean-style community that is often compared to the French Riviera. Sausalito has a wonderful selection of restaurants and shops lining its scenic marina on Bridgeway Avenue.

    Sausalito's many attractions include the Bay Model, a scale model of the San Francisco Bay and Sacramento Delta, and the Bay Area Discovery Museum which offers hands-on interactive exhibits for children.

    After a day of touring, return to San Francisco by ferry. The Blue & Gold Fleet departs Sausalito for Pier 41. Golden Gate Transit departs Sausalito only to the Ferry Building.

    Tiburon Back to Top

    Tiburon

    Just 20 minutes north of San Francisco is Tiburon, a charming town resembling an authentic New England seaport village. In 1884 Tiburon served as a ferry terminal to connect the railroad between San Rafael and San Francisco. Today, Tiburon's Main Street offers unique shops, galleries, cafes and waterfront restaurants with unsurpassed views of San Francisco. Further along Main Street is Ark Row, a collection of restored arks that house a variety of boutiques and specialty stores. Additional shopping is located at the Boardwalk Shopping Center.
