I'm sheduled for a meeting in San Francisco, beginning June 16. But I'm arriving on June 15 (a Sunday) and have the whole day free. My plane is due in at 10 a.m.. My thought was to pick up a car that could be dropped off in town that evening, and head out. I would like to checking into my hotel around 8 p.m.
I would like to see the ocean, some redwoods, a winery or two (though it's not a wine tour per se), and eat all along the way - anything is fair game, from roadside farm stands to picnics to a nice dinner spot.
I'd love to see Muir Woods though the consensus seems that it's ungodly mobbed on weekends. Is there an alternative? And Point Reyes looks lovely. Is there anything picnic-worthy around there?
