Some of Our Staff's Favorite Things To DoSpring Destination Guide

Escape the city and drive North to Marin and Sonoma, where you will find endless activities, whether you are seeking an adventure or a bit of relaxation.

Al Fresco & Indoor Eateries

Now that restrictions have been lifted, travelers can enjoy al
fresco and indoor eateries. We recommend dining in the quaint Bayside town of Sausalito, where you can eat your hearts desire of fresh sushi at Sushi-Ran or sizzling seafood platters at Salito. Take a stroll along the board walk and catch the views of the city from the shoreline. On the go? Consider dining just steps from our hotel at Pacific Catch, Pig In A Pickle or grab a bite at Philz Coffee House.

Day Trips for Beer & Cheese

For day trips in Marin and Sonoma, skip the wine and head out for beer and cheese. From our steps to Healdsburg, you can find world-class breweries. Check out Fieldwork Brewing Co., just a 5 minute walk from our hotel, or go for a ride to discover all the beer masters up Northern California. Some staff favorites include Lagunitas in Petaluma, Russian River Brewing in Santa Rosa, and Racer 5 in Healdsburg. For something different, we recommend the Marin Cheese Trail. Stops along the way include watching the cheese making process at Nicasio Valley Cheese Co. and having a picnic by a picturesque pond at Marin French
Cheese Co. Also, along the trail is the famous Cow Girl Creamery, which put the cheese trail on the map!

Outdoor Adventures

Seeking a bit of adventure? Call up our friends at Marin Outdoor Adventure, your one-stop shop for surf lessons, mountain bike guided rides, guided hikes and meditation in the Marin Headlands. An exciting Northern California adventure awaits in the center of the San Francisco Bay. You can plan your visit to Alcatraz now, which will re-open on March 12! Another great way to get some fresh air in Marin is to visit one of our nearby golf courses. Book a tee time at Peacock Gap in San Rafael or the beautiful Stonetree course in Novato.

Nearby Activities

Spend a day relaxing nearby at The Town Center or the Village at Corte Madera. Both outdoor shopping centers offer high-end shopping and dining experiences. Enjoy browsing and eating on the outdoor terrace at Restoration Hardware — our local company that now has a world presence. At both of these charming shopping centers, you'll find anything from home decor, children's boutiques, to fashion and jewelry stores.
