Fodor's Review

A wonder of arches, circles, and skylights about 8 miles north of Mill Valley, the civic center was Frank Lloyd Wright's last major architectural undertaking. Docent-led tours ($5) leave from the gift shop, on the second floor, on Wednesday mornings at 10:30. You can also wander about on your own; pick up a self-guided tour map at the gift shop (50¢) or access one on the center's website. Don't miss the photographs on the first floor, which show Marin County homes designed

by Wright.
