Marin County

Just across the Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco, and adjacent to the vineyards of Napa and Sonoma, Marin County is an area renowned for its vast natural beauty, outdoor recreation, gorgeous homes, and unique culture. As one of the most affluent counties in the nation, Marin’s incorporated cities are balanced combinations of stunning architecture, rolling hills, redwood groves, and charming small-town eccentricity.

The birthplace of mountain biking, Obi Wan Kenobi, and the oldest trail race in America, Marin consists of a number of towns, each with its own flavor and appeal. Every fall, the glitterati descend on Mill Valley, named one of the “10 Top Cities to Live in America” by both Money magazine and CNN/Money, for the world-renowned Mill Valley Film Festival. Downtown Larkspur is officially listed on the National Registrar of Historic Places, Point Reyes is home to the West Coast’s only national seashore and San Anselmo was named Sunset magazine’s “Best of the West” for antiquing.

The county’s vibrant music scene has deep roots dating back to the 1960s and beyond, and has been home at one time or another to famous musicians and musical acts such as the Grateful Dead, Huey Lewis, Bonnie Raitt, Carlos Santana and Sammy Hagar. Nearly half of Marin is permanently preserved as open space, watershed or parkland, offering a wide variety of outdoor choices from world-famous destinations like Muir Woods, to remote “locals-only” gems where you can go for hours without encountering another human being. But you will run into wildlife. From Gray Whale migrations and Elephant Seal colonies to Tule Elk and tidepools, wildlife is abundant in this natural wonderland.
