If you are planning on visiting San Francisco, you should know about this little gem.
Located on Highway One, just north of San Francisco, Stinson is truly an iconic Bay Area getaway. It’s a blend of sun and fog, beach and cliffs, funky and upscale – and that’s the way we like it.
Don’t go to Stinson expecting a typical day at the beach. You’ll be disappointed, not to mention freezing. Instead, dress in layers, pack your parka, and prepare for fog.
If you time your visit perfectly, you might enjoy a tiny window of sun (or even an entire sunny day!), but more often than not, the fog will creep in at some point. It’s beautiful, but cold.
Pick up gourmet sandwiches at The Lunch Box, or picnic fixins’ at Stinson Beach Market, then head down to the beach for a picnic and views. Or fog and waves.
If you’re so inclined, you can also rent a house or a cottage right on the beach.
