Sharing West Marin experiences through Point Reyes Weekend is a real pleasure. But I really enjoy reading a good writer’s first trip through the area. Jonathan Levitt recounts his first trip to Point Reyes and West Marin in the Boston Globe.
Traveling around the country, asking people about their favorite places, and about their most beautiful places, I heard again and again about the rolling ranchland and wild beaches of west Marin County. Here, the almost 70,000 acres of windswept wildness at Point Reyes National Seashore coexist with cattle ranches, dairy farms, and small organic market gardens. It makes for a balance that attracts tourists content to enjoy the seashore, hike in the hills, and eat good food. Chain stores and rowdy revelers are nowhere in sight.
