We all need something to look forward to again, and planning that perfect getaway to Marin is a great way to get started. Now it’s time to come back, and to spend a little time with us.
From the Headlands to Point Reyes, there’s so much to explore in our backyard. We are fortunate here in Marin that there are so many outdoor spaces and state parks available with many things to do, such as hiking, biking, camping, and water-related fun activities. As a visitor your safety is our primary concern, so we urge you before visiting any area in Marin County to educate yourself on local conditions and regulations. Closures and openings of venues change, and it is up to you to plan ahead and carry out activities in a responsible way to protect yourself and anyone you should contact. But more importantly, remember to always wear a mask and practice physical distancing. So, when the time is right for you to get on the road, we have a few ideas on where to go.
Let’s start dreaming of your next Marin adventure
Marin Convention & Visitors Bureau
Fall is a time of quiet beauty in Marin. Not only are the parks and beaches open, but hotels, museums, restaurants, movie theaters, retail stores, and our outdoor farmer markets as well.
Marin has a number of farmers' markets available to all!
The Sunday and Thursday Civic Center market features nearly 200 local farmers, specialty food purveyors, and artisans. In Corte Madera, The Town Center marketplace is open every Wednesday where you'll find organic and specialty farmers, food purveyors, bakers and more showcasing their bounty in the courtyard. If three days of organic shopping isn't enough, enjoy the best local and organic produce, flowers, pastured meats, seafood, organic cheeses, and yogurt and milk at the Marin County Mart farmers market on Saturdays. This is a year-round rain-or-shine event so you will never be without!
Also back year-round is the Outdoor Antique French Market from 9:00am to 3:00 p.m. at the Civic Center. Beginning on the second Sunday of every month, look at November 8th and December 13th for your holiday gift ideas!
Muir Woods is open now from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. daily, with advanced reservations made through GoMuirWoods.com for parking. Please note that there will be no Muir Woods Shuttle available this year, and parking reservations are being reduced by 50 percent to alleviate crowding. Park entrance fee collection, as well as limited food and gift services, will additionally be open.
Missing the fresh salty air, and sunshine? If so, jump aboard the Angel Island Tiburon Ferry for a safe open-air ride out on the bay to Angel Island. The schedule leaving Tiburon for the island in October will have varying hours of departure from Thursday through Sunday and in November weekends only. All safety precautions have been taken - just enjoy an outing on the bay. This should give us all something to look forward to this fall.
