Late fall is a great time to visit Point Reyes National Seashore. Wildlife is active most of the day, and the coastal plants and grasses that adorn the seaside dunes start to turn their many colors in preparation for the winter. It is only an hour north of San Francisco, and features a historic light house, miles of protected beach, and opportunities for long hikes and overnight backpacking.
