Marin County Civic Center
Architecture lovers won't want to miss the Marin County Civic Center, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. The historic government landmark (home to the admiministration building and the Hall of Justice), offers weekly docent-led tours and self-guided tours.
Also home to Marin Center, the county's largest performing arts and convention facility, the surrounding area features a beautiful 14-acre lagoon and 20-acre park.
Every summer (usually late June/early July), thousands of people flock to Marin to visit the Marin County Fair — you sure can't beat the setting! It makes a fun day out with family and friends.
Don't miss a visit to San Rafael's Farmer Market — it's California's third largest farmers market! Open Sunday 8am-1pm year-round.
If you're looking for a relaxing meditative and yoga getaway for the day (weekend or longer), visit Spirit Rock Meditation Center — about a 20-minute dive from downtown San Rafael.
