There are lots of lovely small communities north of San Francisco along the Pacific Coast of California, with stunning beaches and a quaint, hometown feel. Few towns embody the trademark spirit of Northern California quite like Point Reyes Station, an unincorporated community on Tomales Bay. Before the arrival of the settlers from back east, the peninsula that Point Reyes Station inhabits was home to a flourishing community of coastal Miwok indigenous people. After the arrival of the first railroad, the town was given the name of Olema Station, which would change to Marin and Point Reyes before finally settling on Point Reyes Station in 1891.
