I swear, every time I walked by here I thought "this is a place to see and be seen." While less glamorous than that, I had a damn tasty burger. Frisee salad and shoestring fries were also above average.
Just an hour north of San Francisco, go for the nice, clean beach and burgers and beer at sunset at the Siren Canteen. The hike to Alamere Falls is one of Stinson's main attractions, though it is 8-miles round trip through Redwoods and sandy beach, the 40 foot waterfall into the ocean at the end is breathtaking.
