Marin Headlands

Address: Conzelman Road, Sausalito

Situated north of Golden Gate Bridge is my all time favorite spot in San Francisco Bay Area -- Marin Headlands. You need to drive up the hill along winding Conzelman Road to get to the vista point which overlooks the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco. The view is spectacular and different every time depending on the weather. You'll find yourself situated in two totally different worlds separated by a hill -- a robust city on one side and a tranquil sanctuary on the other. At the top of the hill is a one-way narrow winding road that takes you towards a hiking trail to Point Bonita light house. Further north is the Rodeo Beach famous for surfing and its colorful pebble sand.
