New York Times Dives into Tunes, Trails, Tasty Treats and More in Marin

'36 Hours' series highlights a slew of cultural and culinary hot spots, from Falkirk and Terrapin Crossroads in San Rafael to Gestalt Haus and Hummingbird in Fairfax and a few great trails in between.

If friends or family planned to drop into town for 36 hours, what are the must-dos you'd give them?

The New York Times has some ideas.

Calling Marin "ethereal, privileged, a place apart from the rest of the Bay Area," the Times' Travel section touched down in Marin County this week for its '36 Hours' series, highlighting a number of cultural and culinary hot spots, as well as some top trails.

The Times shone its spotlight on an array of restaurants, including the ever-growing Sol Food empire and Hummingbird in Fairfax and even Saltwater in Inverness. It also featured some old and new cultural institutions, from the Falkirk Cultural Center to ex-Grateful Dead bassist Phil Lesh's Terrapin Crossroads music venue in the old Seafood Peddler restaurant space. The Dipsea, Estero and Tennessee Beach trails got some love as well.

Check out the piece here, and let us know what you think about the Times' selections. What did they miss? What did they get right? What did they get wrong?
