The Perfect Point Reyes Itinerary

Point Reyes…just far enough away from San Francisco to feel like a true getaway (great for people like me who want a vacation but can no longer fly!). We had a fun-filled two nights and highly recommend the itinerary below:

A Day at the Farm

Over MLK weekend, we finally visited the award-winning goat and sheep dairy farm, Tomales Farmstead Creamery. As we hiked up the pastures to visit the two-day old sheep (!), we were immediately transported by the gorgeous West Marin landscape. I highly recommend signing up for one of their guided tours on the first Sunday of each month. Tours include: a hike up to the pastures to learn about their organic pasture management system, a visit to their milking parlor, a visit with the animals in the barn and/ or in the pastures and of course, a cheese tasting!

If you live in the Bay Area, be sure to check out the list of restaurants, farmers market, markets and cheese shops so you can try their delicious cheese for yourself! Click here.

Shelter Co Warehouse Sale

I’ve been a long time fan of the San Francisco-based company, Shelter Co (see here). This Friday through Monday, they’re offloading hundreds of lounge furniture and soft good items including: brand new pillows and rugs just in from India. For great preview shots, follow along on Instagram.

The Marshall Store

Good company. Good oysters. And one happy beer boy. Hank’s first trip to our favorite Tomales Bay seafood shack, The Marshall Store. And in case you missed it, here’s my guide to exploring/ eating/ shopping your way through beautiful West Marin.

goop MRKT x SF

A visit to the Goop MRKT on Maiden Lane is a must-do for San Francisco residents and visitors, simply to see the space alone. While I only walked away with GP’s new cookbook, It’s All Easy (highly recommend!), click below to see what else I was eying:

Matt Davis Trail :: Mill Valley

Finally a hike that incorporates it all: hand-hewed footbridges, waterfalls, redwoods, fern canyons, city and ocean views. We explored Troop 80 and Matt Davis trail in Mill Valley on MLK day and will definitely be back with friends and visitors in tow. We worked up quite an appetite and hit Buckeye Roadhouse on the way back into the city (order the crispy polenta sticks). A day well spent.

I found the directions online to be a little confusing so hopefully this helps:

  • Park in the lot across from Mountain Home Inn
  • Take the gravel path up past the Throckmorton Fire Station and green water tower
  • Take the trail uphill marked ‘Matt Davis’ on your left
  • Follow Matt Davis and continue on Bootjack Trail
  • Retrace your steps or take Panoramic Trail back to the parking lot
