You think of California in the summer months, you automatically think of hot summer days. But you will be very surprised to know that in San Francisco, it can be a bit chilly, especially in August. So if you need a break from the heat, head to San Francisco! Its well known for a number unique characteristics like its chilly summer fog, steep rolling hills and eclectic mix of Victorian and modern architecture. And of course the famous Landmark, The Golden Gate Bridge. This article is the place to find out where to go and what to see and do in San Francisco during the “chilly” Summer month of August!
Marin County is a county located in the San Francisco Bay Area of the U.S. state of #California. Its just one famous bridge away from San Francisco. And right next door to the vineyards of #Napa and #Sonoma. Closer than you could ever imagine to everything that’s unique in this amazing corner of California. Marin County is nestled between #SanFrancisco and the Napa Valley, Marin County includes the cities of #Tiburon, San Anselmo, San Rafael and Corte Madera. At the Marin County Fairgrounds in May, events include a wine-tasting, fine food and “The Drive,” a parade of classic cars winding their way through the scenic back roads of Marin and neighboring #Sonoma Counties ending with a delicious lunch in San Rafael. In July, be sure to head to the Marin County Fair and in August hit the San Rafael Food and Wine Festival. Treat yourself to some of the world-renowned local wine and watch the sun go down over the hills. Of course, there’s no shortage of natural beauty in Marin County. Beach lovers will enjoy Stinson Beach, one of my personal places, or Point Reyes National Seashore where you will experience wildlife at every step. Also, if youre lucky enough that is, you just might spot some Elephant Seals or Tule Elk along the rugged terrain or, from Point Reyes #Lighthouse, catch a glimpse of a pod of whales. Go butterfly or bird watching and enjoy the many natural wonders of California’s Northern Coast.
