When I was a kid, my parents would take us to Point Reyes Station for the day. There was a hardware store where you could get just about anything. But as kids, we were most impressed by the fact that there was absolutely nothing to do in the town — no park, no beach, no book store, nothing. How times change.

Today, more than 2.5 million people trek through this gateway each year, en route to the glories of Limantour Beach, Drakes Estero and Point Reyes National Seashore. Some are so smitten by seashore dreams that they spare only a glance for the Western Marin towns of Olema, Inverness and Point Reyes Station. The spectacular, bucolic landscapes are indeed grand, but these villages are beguiling all on their own.
