Located just across the Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco, Marin County combines the quirkiness of its urban neighbor to the south with a wealth of open, natural spaces. The county’s outdoor attractions include the Marin Headlands, Muir Woods National Monument, and Point Reyes National Seashore. From beach to mountainside, there are a wide variety of ecosystems to explore.
While many Marin County residents work in San Francisco or Silicon Valley, others live in small villages along scenic Route 1 and make their living by providing services to tourists. Drawn by its cosmopolitan population and active tourism industry, some of the nation’s best restaurants call Marin County home.
