We stopped in the visitors center to grab a map because we could not figure out how to get to the lighthouse. They had maps on several National Parks and the local area which were very helpful and a sweet woman who was giving directions.

This is a small/tiny museum but it is packed with history and well worth a 15 minute aside. Blink and you will miss it.

Lots to do across the bay from San Francisco and the Visitor's Center is a great place to start. Friendly folks with lots of brochures, pamphlets, maps and up to date information. You'll plan out your trip right with minimal zig zags and backtracking. ...

Lovely little village, very popular and crowded, had the best sandwiches at the Bakery for lunch. BLT and Chicken Pesto both excellent.

A cute, relaxing, slightly pretentious getaway from San Francisco. We biked across the bridge and did the "bike valet". Restaurant selection can be limited and many places only take cash (there are a Bank of America and a few other ATMs around). If taking a...More
