The small southern Marin "town"
of Muir Beach is just 6 miles from the Highway 1 exit off Highway
101 north of San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge.
It two beaches, the
surrounding Golden Gate National Recreation Area, Mt. Tamalpais,
nearby Muir Woods National Monument, Green Gulch Farm/Zen Center,
Slide Ranch and, of course the "old" English Pub, The
Pelican Inn makes this a great getaway destination. This beautiful
area is full of wildlife: Monarch butterflies in the pine trees,
salmon in Redwood Creek, frogs, fox, birds, deer, coyote.
Horseback riding, beach combers, boogie boarders and kayakers come
here year around to enjoy the fresh sea air.
Great fishing for
Steelhead in season and trout can be found in the streams that run
off the hills. The Community Center has classes, craft fairs, and
can be rented for events, the Volunteer Fire Department has a fun
Rock-N-Roll fundraiser BBQ each Memorial Day Sunday. Originally
settled by the Miwok and Portuguese, Muir Beach celebrates its
historic lore, its arts and its quiet beauty.
