Just like its namesake Farley, the popular San Francisco Chronicle comic-strip character created by the late Phil Frank, Farley Bar at Cavallo Point Hotel, just over the Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco, is a Bay Area favorite.

Understated and relaxing, it offers a small-plate menu and creative cocktails that can be enjoyed on the veranda with your four-legged companion by your side. A bonus: exceptional views of the Golden Gate Bridge and the beautifully restored buildings of historic Fort Baker.

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 »

Following are a few to put on your dog-friendly Marin bucket list. more »
black and white dog at fish
Sunny days are made for Fish. That’s “Fish.” with a period, which is what this dressed-up New England seafood shack in Sausalito is all about. Order your chowder, barbecued oysters or daily special at the counter, then retreat to a table on the big, dog-friendly deck perched above a harbor where sailboats bob and the views are smile-inspiring. 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 »

Dog vacation at Cavallo Point Lodge in Marin CountyPanoramic views of the blocky white San Francisco skyline and the heart-stopping swoop of the Golden Gate Bridge are a dime a dozen in Marin County. Ramble as you may, they don't get much better than along the extensive trail system surrounding Fort Baker, site of a 19th-century military installation converted into the luxury (and dog-friendly) Cavallo Point Lodge in Sausalito. more »
Dog in front of Golden Gate Bridge
Many San Francisco residents consider September and October to be the best times of year to enjoy outdoor pursuits and Golden Gate views. With wind and fog at a minimum, it’s also the best time of year to walk across the iconic bridge—an activity that, alas, no longer is legal to enjoy with dogs. But that doesn’t mean that you and your four-legged companion can’t get an eyeful of the city’s most enduring symbol. If you’re visiting the city with four-legged family members, or are hosting someone who is, here are four good Golden Gate Bridge vantage points: more »
