Point Reyes National Seashore is a spectacular sprawl of marshland, grasslands, and beautiful coastline. Established by President Kennedy in 1962, this pristine wildlife preserve houses a great number of California's marine mammals, plants, and bird species. The seashore is huge, meaning that there is not one precise location to visit. But do enjoy the winding scenic coastal drive and the ocean views, and eventually you will stumble upon the Point Reyes Lighthouse. In order to get to Point Reyes from San Francisco, you will cross the Golden Gate Bridge, pass Sausalito, Mt. Tamalpais, and Muir Woods. So make a day of it, and make frequent stops along the way to enjoy the most pristine natural beauty in California.
