One of the assets of Point Reyes National Seashore is that all those wild, surf-lapped landscapes are just a blink away from civilized comforts. There’s no need to pack in a trunk-load of groceries with so many good restaurants nearby. Then again, there’s something to be said for having a kitchen where you can make breakfast and save a few bucks by rustling up your own lunch or dinner.  more »

It was half a century ago, in 1962, that Point Reyes National Seashore north of San Francisco was created to preserve a magnificent stretch of coastline and the farmlands abutting it. Although dogs are allowed on only three beaches within the preserve, the always refreshing rewards of a visit make it well worth the drive.  more »

If you’re a dog, you can thank your lucky stars for the opportunity to live in or visit Marin County, where dog-friendly open space abounds. In the beach department, leash-optional Muir Beach, Rodeo Beach, Bolinas Beach and Dillon Beach are tail-wagger faves. more »
