|Marin County is only a short drive north from downtown San Francisco (or take the ferry to Sausalito), but it’s a world away from the city. Towering redwoods, cascading streams, lush ferns and moss, spring wildflowers, sandy beaches along the bay, Marin County is perfect for a day outdoors with kids.|
|Marin Headlands, Tennesee Valley, and Muir Woods National Monument are part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, the largest national park in an urban area. A car is necessary to get to these areas, but hiking in this spectacular scenery is an unforgettable family experience.|

|Tip: Another day trip, 20 miles further up the coast is Point Reyes National Seashore.|
