Visiting Point Reyes Station – Travel Photo Mondays

Let’s go for a drive along around the scenic countryside of Marin county in Northern California to visit the sweet little town of Point Reyes Station, it’s just on the outside of the Point Reyes National Seashore. It’s such a wonderful day again to spend outdoors and enjoy the beauty of the landscape in this area and visit the coastal areas of Point Reyes and the town that bears its name.

The road trip through the farmlands and forests of Marin county are gorgeous to pass through on this drive, bucolic rolling hills dotted with wildflowers, small farms and producers of artisanal foods from the region support this mostly agrarian lifestyle. Along the way are small villages and towns that if you blink, you’ve completely passed them in a blur, but not so for the small hamlet of Point Reyes station, a quaint stop for lunch and enjoying the cool galleries and quirky side of this fun town.

If your into art, there a many art galleries that feature local artists, crafters, jewelers and other artisans. If your into eating, try sampling the creamy cheese at The Cowgirl Cremery, the Pine Cone Diner or some of the restaurants featuring locally sourced seafood, produce and other artisanal foods from the area.
