Unlocking the Secrets of Stinson Beach: A Tranquil Escape Just Miles from San Francisco

If you know me at all, then you know I am a California girl at heart. When I need a reset, I head to the West Coast any chance I can. For me it is always centering and I come home refreshed and inspired by all the beauty.

I recently spent a fantastic week plus in Stinson Beach. (A short escape from San Fransisco, but feels like a million miles away). I have been through this area many times before, but opting to make this home base for a late January trip to California was perfect.

  • Fewer crowds
  • Lovely weather
  • Off Season prices
  • So many hikes to take advantage of right outside your door

You know I am a visual person, so I’ll share a few highlights of this special place. Shhh, it’s our little secret, right!? 😉 In this trip we explored Stinson Beach, Bolinas, Bodega Bay, and Rt. Reyes and Tomales Bay.

I could go on and on, but for now I’ll leave you with this…
