What’s the attraction: In 1907, a Sausalito water company planned to dam Redwood Creek and flood the valley that now holds Muir Woods National Monument. Congressman William Kent, who owned the land, donated it to the federal government when the company threatened to use eminent domain to seize the property, and President Theodore Roosevelt declared it a national monument.

Named after the naturalist John Muir, the 554-acre national park is home to an old-growth coast redwood forest, oak and maple groves, salmon in Redwood Creek and dozens of bird species, squirrels and chipmunks, deer and more.
