I agree with the other reviews that this is an outstanding area with lots to do and see. Its location close to San Francisco makes it convenient, yet it wasn't at all crowded on three weekdays in August. Out on the trails we were practically alone. The roads in the area are good, and the visitor center has nice displays... More

Beautiful national seashore with spectacular views. We saw elk and elephant seals along with many birds, pelicans, buzzards and gulls. Although we were there on a cloudy day, it was still a very picturesque place.

Such a breathtaking drive through such beautiful terrain. We have done this drive a number of times and we never tire of it. Such a way to spend a day!

Point Reyes offers beautiful views. We went to view the elephant seals and also made the trek down and back up to the lighthouse, which offered incredible views (and was a good workout, there are many steps to climb!). Tip: If you go to see the elephant seals, I would strongly recommend bringing binoculars or a telephoto lens.

What can I say? An absolutely gorgeous day with my honey on a stretch of perhaps the most beautiful places in the west! We are from the East coast so I guess the views of the mountains, trails, sun sets and the ocean wow me a bit more. We have flat land and beaches in NJ so this was a... More

This is absolutely my favorite beach to visit with my pups! Everyone is so nice and there is SO much shoreline that you get your own little private beach front. Seeing the dogs running in the waves, and so happy is worth every mile down here. I drive down from Sac to do this for my pups and to see... More
