Beneath the redwoods in Mill Valley

North out of San Francisco, where the redwood forests sprout from the sculpted ridges of the Marin Hills, homey Mill Valley comes hidden beneath the trees. It's a great place to base a family visit to the Bay Area, what with those quaint coffeeshops, cozy Californian lodges, and handsome Mill Valley vacation rentals on the edge of the Muir Woods. In the town, old lumber mills ooze history, hikers devour organic foods in the local diners, yogis meditate in Zen gardens, and there's just an all-round rustic charm to enjoy.

Things to do

From Mill Valley to San Fran

Less than 30 minutes in the car will take you all the way from the wild redwood groves of Mill Valley to the heart of San Francisco. As you scoot out of the town, be sure to see the historical remnants of the Mill Valley Mill – the old lumber station that started things off. Then, you're on to the Golden Gate Bridge and the uber-cool Mission District. From there, you can sort out trips across to haunting Alcatraz Island, visits to Madame Tussauds San Francisco, and street walks around the bustling blocks of Chinatown.

Activities

Make the most of your surroundings in Mill Valley

Whether you've opted for a modern condo in the heart of the old lumber town or Mill Valley vacation rentals in the Muir Woods, you're never going to be too far from a trailhead in these parts. Wax up the walking boots and you could find yourself scrambling between the Douglas firs to the summit of Mount Tamalpais, where panoramas of the Pacific Ocean unfold. Meditation sessions also await in the local Zen centers for New Age types, while hearty bookstores and boutiques pepper the streets for shoppers.

Weather

From spring to fall in Mill Valley

With so many miles of unforgettable hiking trails just a stone's throw from those Mill Valley vacation rentals, it's hardly a surprise that most people flock here with the walking gear in tow during the warmer, drier months of the year. It all starts with the flower blooms of spring in April and May, and continues right through to September. Adventurers aren't the only happy ones then, either. Sightseers and culture vultures with the delights of greater San Fran in mind will also have the best conditions for touring the so-called Paris of the West.

Natural features

Mill Valley is the land of mighty redwoods

Mill Valley is one of the few places where you can bed down close to both the bustling heart of San Francisco and the towering groves of redwood trees that make the forests of North Cali so famous. They erupt all over the town, and creep up to unimaginable heights with the beautiful reserves of the Muir Woods. Mount Tamalpais is the great peak that crashes over the horizon to the west – it cascades dramatically down to meet the roaring waves of the Pacific on its far side.
