6 Fun and Active Family Outings for the New Year
Happy New Year from our family to yours! Make a resolution for the new year to get the family out and active together. Check out one of our fun ideas for active outdoor family outings in Marin and the Bay Area for the beginning of 2021.
Take a family mountain bike ride
Take a mountain bike ride with the kiddos on a fun family-friendly trail. Some of our favorite spots include China Camp State Park near San Rafael and Rush Creek Open Space Preserve in Novato. Find more in our guide to family friendly bike trails in Marin.
Explore the Marin Headlands
The Marin Headlands is a favorite place for families to explore. Play at Rodeo Beach, hike to South Rodeo Beach (shown in opening photo), and see historic sites.
Visit the Beach in Point Reyes
A visit to a beach at Point Reyes National Seashore is always a favorite family outing. Drakes Beach is a popular destination, with a sheltered location, relatively calm waves, and the opportunity to see wildlife like elephant seals in winter. Limantour Beach is a great choice, too.
Walk in the Footsteps of Jack London
Jack London State Historic Park in Glen Ellen, north of Sonoma, offers visitors a chance to walk in the footsteps of the famed author. Opportunities for great hikes and walks abound, and don't miss the Pig Palace and the ruins of London's Wolf House.
Ride or walk on the Tiburon Bike Path
The Tiburon Bike Path with its amazing views of San Francisco Bay, is a great place for an active family outing, and there's even a playground along the way. It's perfect for both walking and cycling. Don't forget to visit the statue of Blackie the horse in Blackie's Pasture.
Hike Tennessee Valley
The Tennessee Valley Trail near Mill Valley is a perfect hike for families, and can even be tackled with a sturdy offroad stroller. With few hills, the 3.4-mile round trip hike out to the beach at Tennessee Cove and back is easy for hikers (and mountain bikers, too) of all ages.
