AUGUST IS ALWAYS a fun month because it is when we can reveal our Best of the County picks. This time around we ditched the 101 items format and organization by town and decided to just focus
in on what makes Marin great. We love the
results. And you’ll love reading about the best
wraps, the best burgers, the best drinks, the
best yoga and so much more.
We continue with a feature by Peter Fish
about the 100th anniversary of the National
Park Service and the wonder that is Point
Reyes National Seashore. Earning a national
park designation for this area wasn’t a slam
dunk; it took some local heroes to make it happen. Learn the history and find out what the
next 100 years hold.
Features wrap up with a story on a group
of folks who have shared more than 10,000
breakfasts at Fred’s Place in Sausalito. Tom
James gets the scoop on why attendees
(almost) never miss the morning meal.
Up front we introduce you to a lively
lifeguard, a paddleboard purveyor and a bril-
liant birder. We also take a look at a regional
plan to solve the dredging issues that are
and so much
obstructing the San Rafael Canal and the
progress being made on a proposed $20 mil-
lion centralized Marin Farmers Market.
In Destinations, we’re off to Oahu to
explore the culinary evolution that continues
with Hawaii’s next generation of chefs and
show you who (and what) is cooking at the
sixth annual Hawaii Food and Wine Festival.
And if you like islands, you’ll love our look at
three exclusive international hot spots for
dipping your toes in the sand.
It’s a fun issue for those who like to eat,
hike, drink, stretch, shop and play. We hope
you enjoy it and to see you at one, or all, of
the places highlighted in our Best of the
