All things Marin brought to you by Kate + Mary

Summer is officially in the air here in Marin and that means plenty of trips to the pool, double scoop ice cream cones and outdoor movies in the park! Grab your blankets, pack a picnic dinner (complete with a nice bottle of rosé, of course) and head to the fun. Official start times for this is generally “when it’s dark enough to see the movie.” So, get there with enough time to secure prime real estate on the grass and settle in for some good family fun.

With a long weekend in front of us and perfect weather in the forecast, there’s nothing better than a staycation right here in Marin. We think picture-perfect Sausalito is the ideal place to spend a day. In typical Marin style, we’d like to offer up a work hard/play hard kind of itinerary. Ok, so the “work” we are referring to is a beautiful hike with breathtaking views of The Bay but hey, that’s our kind of day!

One Perfect Day in Sausalito

Hike: Morning Sun Trail to SCA Trail

This gorgeous trail is known for beautiful sunrise vistas, sweeping Pacific Ocean views that include the Golden Gate Bridge and Angel Island and wildflowers throughout.

The hike: about 4.8 miles round-trip, intermediate in difficulty
Getting there: Hwy 101, exit 443 at Spencer Avenue, the trailhead is on the right, 300 feet from the off-ramp
Parking: free on the service road or in Park & Ride lot

Indulge: Cavallo Point Spa

After that scenic hike (did we mention that it starts with 200 steps up to the trail?) you deserve a little relaxation. Head to our favorite Marin spa, Cavallo Point.

Arrive Marin favorites: Himalayan Salt Stone Massage & the Cavallo Signature Facial
Reservations: a must, book your appointment here
Nothing but time: bring the newspaper and lounge post-treatment by the heated outdoor meditation pool

Dine & Drink: Farley Bar, Cavallo Point

We can’t think of a better way to end this day than with a great meal and a holiday weekend cocktail (or two). We are crazy about the vibe on the outdoor deck at Farley Bar.

What to eat: small plates to share is our favorite way to go at this hotspot. We love Farley Bar’s comfort food such as the sake-braised short rib sliders, smoked trout deviled eggs and the roasted onion truffle dip with housemade potato chips.
What to drink: if there was ever the perfect time and place to sit and sip a bottle of champagne, this is it! Farley Bar is also known for some of the best artisanal cocktails such as the ginger snapper (whiskey, rosé wine & ginger liqeur) and the spicy paloma (jalapeño tequila, lime & grapefruit).
Insider tip: if that NorCal fog starts to roll in, ask for one of the hotel’s warm wool blankets to get cozy and stay awhile. Heck, book a room and stay all night at this fabulous hotel!
