We recently went behind the scenes with the Port of San Francisco to get a peek at the Dogpatch's waterfront before the area gets a serious makeover. We toured the massive, 69-acre complex at Mariposa and 22nd streets–which is currently dense with historic buildings left over from San Francisco's industrial past. That includes 150 years of continuous ship building and repair. What you see today will look very different in a few years.

We're guessing after a day of stuffing your face with turkey, watching football, and lounging around in a tryptophan-induced coma, you may need some fresh air in the great outdoors. Lucky for us, we don't need to go far to totally escape the city and the Presidio is the perfect respite from the hustle bustle.
Now that the days are getting shorter and more chilly, it gets harder and harder to get yourself to the great outdoors. But here in SF, we're damn lucky to have one of the nation's most vast parks as our collective backyard.
On the western edge of Marin county is a beautiful National Seashore, quaint towns, great bicycling, camping, wildlife viewing and amazing hiking. Welcome to Point Reyes and the surrounding area.
Recently, we spent a weekend exploring the area and took some photos along the way. Escape up Highway 1 and be outside of the reach of the noise and hustle of the city within 1.5 hours.
