We all remember how much fun we had exploring the neighborhood on bikes as kids. What's stopping you from enjoying the same thrill around the Bay Area now? Even if you haven't been to a SoulCycle class—let alone hopped on an actual bike—in months, you'll find a ride on this list that is just your speed.
Marin County is home to a plethora of outdoor adventure opportunities including hiking and biking trails, beaches, and lighthouses spread across the diverse public lands. Though some of these areas can get crowded on weekends, there are also plenty of trails that are comparatively less traveled. Here are a few of our favorites.
Festival junkies who're lamenting the official close of the summer season can look forward to Sound Summit, a musical night atop Mount Tamalpais, this Saturday, September 19, 2015.
Tucked beneath a towering peak, Phoenix Lake is the smallest jewel in a necklace of reservoirs that surround the leeward side of Mt. Tamalpais and serves as a great introduction to the network of hiking trails that crisscross the Marin Municipal Water District’s 147-square-mile watershed.
It's only natural that Marin County is a year-round beach destination. While summer is definitely high season for locals and tourists alike, many outdoor activities like kayaking and surfing can be enjoyed any time of the year. From quiet beaches with white sand and calm waters to luxurious cruises and marine reserves, Marin has it all.
If there's one thing the movies have taught us, it's that arriving by boat always makes the destination more romantic. Give picturesque Tiburon that advantage by starting your weekday hike with a quick trip on the Blue and Gold ferry from Fisherman's Wharf. Once you've arrived, brace yourself for a breathtaking stroll around the historic homes of both Corinthian and Belvedere Islands.
Want sweeping Bay views from atop the Tiburon peninsula? It's gonna cost you.
