Wander through the ancient groves of coastal redwoods in Muir Woods National Monument and walk along the quaint sidewalks of Downtown Sausalito. Muir Woods is an example of an old-growth redwood forest located only about 30 minutes from downtown San Francisco. You’ll have an hour and a half to roam through this ‘living museum’ where you can get a glimpse of the towering trees that used to dominate the west coast from Santa Barbara to Washington.
After exploring Muir Woods you’ll get a 15-20 minute narrated tour through the beautiful seaside Mediterranean-style town of Sausalito along with 45 minutes to explore on your own before returning to the city across the Golden Gate Bridge. If you’d like to stay longer in Sausalito, you can hop off the motorcoach in this lovely town and add on a picturesque ferry ride back to San Francisco!
