Want to be somewhere so beautiful that you'll forget about all the troubles and strife in the rest of the world? Watch for whales, or see salmon spawn? Feel the power and the pull of the ocean? Then Point Reyes National Seashore, just north of San Francisco, is the place to be.
"Point Reyes National Seashore was established to preserve and protect wilderness, natural ecosystems, and cultural resources along the diminishing undeveloped coastline of the western United States.
Located just an hour's drive from a densely populated metropolitan area, the Seashore is a sanctuary for myriad plant and animal species and for the human spirit — for discovery, inspiration, solitude, and recreation — and exists as a reminder of the human connection to the land.
Whether you are a frequent visitor to the Seashore or planning your first visit to the park, we hope the information provided here will answer questions you may have."
