Majestic Marin County

From the salt-washed marina towns that dot the San Fran Bay Area in the east to the redwood-ribbed hills of its western mountains, Marin County is a treasure trove of treats on the edge of the big city. It starts as soon as you cross the Golden Gate Bridge but doesn't finish until you reach the whale-filled fringes of Bodega Bay. Between the two, you can discover colossal sequoias in the Muir Woods National Monument, walk windblown beaches on the Point Reyes National Seashore, or settle in Marin County vacation rentals in quaint mill towns shrouded by woods.

Activities

Adventure awaits in Marin County

Ask any locals of Marin County and they'll tell you just how much they love the backcountry delights of their little corner of the Bay Area. With hulking redwoods shouldering above the pathways here, and wild beaches washed over by surf there, it's easy to see why. You can hike, bike, and drive your way through a lot of it, too, so it's really accessible from the doorstep of many Marin County vacation rentals. Then there are the guided tours of San Francisco city to get involved with, and the whale-watching jaunts along Point Reyes.

Weather

Indian summers in Marin County

Marin County, like the rest of the San Francisco Bay Area, typically gets lovely Indian summers extending well past September and into October. Many locals will champion this period as the single best time of year, touting beautiful scenery, warm days, and slightly lower rates in Marin County vacation rentals. That said, the spring is also wonderful, while the wallet-friendly stays of winter – with their regular rains from December to March – could just free up the dollars you need to enjoy the so-called Paris of the West to its fullest.
