"Beautiful Views, Beautiful Highway"

The views are great, the food stops are aplenty, and the sun is always shining - what more can you ask for from a major California interstate? The 101 stretch in Mill Valley offers beautiful hillside views, rivaled only by neighboring Sausalito. The quaint town offers plenty of food and fuel options, without even having to drive far off the highway.

Biggest drawbacks are the traffic congestion (obviously) and the fact that Mill Valley is one of the most expensive places to live in the country. But for an afternoon weekend drive that will give you great views without making you feel carsick (not an easy thing to find in the Bay Area), 101 in Marin County, also known as the Redwood Highway, is a great place to be.
