Your morning starts with a drive across the Golden Gate Bridge, where you’ll stop to take in views from Vista Point on your way to Muir Woods. You have about 75 minutes here to walk along paths through the forest of old-growth coastal redwoods, known for being some of the oldest and tallest trees in the world.
Then head to Sausalito, a picturesque small town nestled between the Marin Headlands and San Francisco Bay on the north side of the Golden Gate Bridge. Take a walk on the waterfront, grab a snack (own expense) or check out the art galleries and shops. Once back in San Francisco, board your 1-hour Bay Cruise departing from Pier 39.
