If you live in the Bay Area, you owe it to yourself to experience this hike-in breakfast at least once. It’s only a 2-mile walk to West Point Inn on the slopes of Mount Tamalpais if you take the Old Stage Road connecting to dog-friendly Marin County Municipal Water District trails. The inn, an off-the-grid haven built alongside a long-defunct railroad, sits at a lofty 1,785 feet elevation, offering sweeping views of the landscapes and seascapes below. more »

For 75 years, the Golden Gate Bridge has been the symbol of San Francisco — and one that never grows less beautiful with the passing of time. It's no longer legal to walk over the bridge with a dog, but there are many trails-with-a-view from which to admire it in the city and in adjacent Marin County.  more »
