          Hi everyone, would appreciate any suggestions - will be staying at the Marin Lodge with my family in a couple of months. Will have a car, planning to sightsee in San Francisco for just a couple of days - the usual tourist destinations in the city. Wondering if it works better to drive into the city and park there for the day, or else if the San Rafael transit center is walking distance from the lodge and it makes more sense to take the bus into the city. Thanks!
