People often ask me: what are some great day trips from San Francisco to neighboring parts of fabulous California? One of my favorites is from San Francisco to Stinson Beach.  It’s about 45-60 minutes (depending on what day/time you go) and there are various routes you can take each offering different beautiful scenery and stops along the way.

Sand Dollar Restaurant – During my most recent trip to Stinson Beach my Dad, Linda (his girlfriend), and I enjoyed a fabulous lunch and some great live tunes on the patio at Sand Dollar Restaurant. The live music is offered on most Saturdays and Sundays, for the full music schedule, check here.    If you enjoy live music, want a casual restaurant with good service and tasty casual beachside cafe food, this is the spot for you! 3458 Shoreline Hwy Stinson Beach, CA 94970

ParkSide Cafe – This was a cute Cafe on both the Beachside of Stinson Beach (just behind the Stinson Beach Parking lot) and off the main drag, Shoreline Highway. Although I haven’t had a chance to eat here it’s rated #1 on Yelp and was crowded the few times we passed by it. I’ll definitely be sure to visit next time I’m visiting Stinson Beach. 43 Arenal Avenue. Stinson Beach, California.
