The town of Stinson is very small, but has everything you really need. We took a walk down the strip of shops and enjoyed walking through Stinson Beach Books, which is a great little book store with a surprisingly large assortment of children's books and toys. There are half a dozen restaurants in town, as well as a small market if you need to pick up some picnic basics. We decided to get take-out from The Lunch Box and we were really happy with both the quality and the price! We split the TriBeca sandwich, a fruit salad, couscous and quinoa salad with fresh tomatoes and cucumber and got a small container of their Cookies n' Cream gelato for dessert. Everything was delicious!
The beach entrance (and parking lot) are just behind the shops, so it is an easy walk to the water once you have your food. We spent the next few hours taking in the views of the beach, enjoying our picnic and watching the kids run around and play in the sand. The weather was beautiful for December - 60 degrees with calm winds and the occasional break from the clouds that actually made it kind of warm!

It was a great day with the family and has really gotten me excited about what new adventures lay ahead of us!

The Details: Lunch at the Lunch Box: $23 Gas/Toll: $10. We brought additional snacks for the kids, and easily could have cut costs further had we prepared ahead of time and brought our own picnic lunch. Not bad!!
