You’ve escaped the city
and landed in beautiful
Marin. Now what?
TRAVELING TO MARIN BY FERRY is an experience in itself, but each
ferry terminal offers opportunities to explore the county — on dry land.
Here, we share a few favorite eateries, stores and gift items available within
walking distance of each Marin-bound boat.
HUNT Take a stroll to Caledonia Street for a look at local fashion. Recent
additions to the neighborhood are gr.dano Boutique and Design Studio,
specializing in Bay Area–inspired, stylish clothing, and Sarah Swell Jewelry.
NIBBLE A seasonal menu, open-air seating and a full tequila bar
make Copita the ultimate summertime stop. Located directly across
from the ferry terminal, the Mexican eatery offers gluten-free lunch
and dinner options featuring ingredients grown in the restaurant’s
TAKE AWAY Opened in 2013, Driver’s Market brings artisanal, environmentally friendly edibles to Sausalito in a space that’s held a grocery store
since the ’70s. With the juice bar, gourmet deli and carefully curated local
goods, you won’t leave empty-handed. driversmarket.com
HUNT Forget the mall — downtown Tiburon is a haven for all types of
women’s clothing, shoes and jewelry. Favorites like Koze, Citrus, Sarah Shaw
Studio and Vineyard Vines will ensure you go home in style. getkoze.com,

NIBBLE For a lunchtime experience that is truly Tiburon, Waypoint Pizza
is a must. Find the building — an early 1880s landmark — by looking for the
iconic compass rose, and stay for delicious pies, pastas and salads served in a
nautical, family-friendly atmosphere. waypointpizza.com
TAKE AWAY Couloir Wines and Straight Line Wine are quintessential
California — locally produced, with European influences. Winemaker
Jon Grant gained experience at several of Napa Valley’s top wineries
before creating his signature Couloir Pinot Noir, an ideal souvenir to save
and sip. couloirwines.com
HUNT The L. A. fashion scene has found a home at Marin Country Mart.
With stores like Calypso St. Barth, Intermix, James Perse and Malia Mills,
you may want to apologize to your wallet in advance. marincountrymart.com
NIBBLE MCM is home to plenty of delicious restaurants, but if you’re lucky
enough to visit on a Sunday, you will be welcomed by Off the Grid’s fleet of
food trucks. Be prepared to chow down. marincountrymart.com

important; at Diesel, A Bookstore, the staff book worms read, review and
