Driving from SFO to Point Reyes Station

We will be driving from SFO to Point Reyes Station soon. Instead of going up route 101 what if we drove up route 1 where is goes off 101 in between Marin City and Point Reyes? Are there any stops or sites to see along route 1? Thanks!

There is lots to see along that route. Muir Woods if you want to make the detour. The overlook at Muir Beach is gorgeous. Then there is a nice cliff coast drive to Stinson Beach. If you can find the sign you can check out Bolinas (the locals are always removing the sign to keep tourists from finding them).

After that it heads inland but it's still an idyllic drive through Olema Valley. You're pretty much right on the San Andreas Fault in that section as well.

Oh boy, right on the fault. It's kind of exciting and freaky at the same time. We saw Muir Woods several years ago and Muir Beach so we might just keep driving but who knows. Thanks very much!

Is Bolinas a far drive south from route 1?

nope not that far. Good luck on finding Bolinas

if you are staying in the area, Marshall is a great place after Point Reyes for Oysters
