San Francisco tour bus rentals
Part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, the Marin Headlands are one of the top-rated attractions in the San Francisco Bay area. It is a unique destination that offers visitors glorious views of the ocean, and an array of hiking trails and other outdoor amenities. There are amazing blankets of wildflowers that appear each spring, and it is a natural way station for nearly 20,000 migratory raptors during the autumn. From the coastal beach to the majestic headlands, there is something always new and exciting for nature lovers to enjoy.
China Camp State Park in Marin County is one of the Bay Area’s best places to get away from it all. Although fairly close to San Francisco, across the Bay and north near San Rafael, it doesn’t draw as many visitors as other Bay Area state parks, which is just fine with the locals who love hiking, biking, camping and exploring this beautiful place. China Camp draws its name from an old Chinese shrimp-fishing village located on San Pablo Bay, which provided shrimp to most of the Chinatowns in the U.S., as well as exporting many tons to China. Today, there are many vestiges of this once-thriving community from a junk anchored just offshore to a visitor’s center inside a weathered old warehouse full of old artifacts and exhibits explaining the history of the camp and the area.
