I think people at every stage in the Bay Area’s History have been a
little nervous about what might come through the Golden Gate.  
Witness Fort Point, all those bunkers in the Headlands, etc.  Well,
if you have ever headed out to Point Bonita, you may have noticed
a missile....waitaminute, a MISSLE?  Yes, a missile sitting on the
ground facing, appropriately, some might say, towards
Sacramento.  Now you and the kids can poke around this same
missile and all the stuff that kept us safe in the 1950s.  Never
mind that there were nuclear warheads just a rocket’s throw from
Mill Valley.

Ever wonder what happens to seals and other distressed sea
creatures that are found on the beach or the highway?  Most
times, they end up here. This is not an aquarium but a working
marine rescue facility with educational exhibits and work areas
where you can watch the staff at work.  The directions on the site
are pretty good.  We highly recommend the scenic route!

Point Bonita Lighthouse, Marin Headlands, FREE http://www.nps.
gov/goga/pobo.htm
The lighthouse is a great afternoon walk.  Hours are limited, so
plan accordingly.  The lighthouse is open Saturdays, Sundays,
and Mondays from 12:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.  After that the tunnel
door slams shut.  The trail is a half mile long ending in a
breathtaking suspension bridge out to the lighthouse.  The views
of the crashing waves, city, and bridge make it a beautiful walk.
