Just south of San Francisco, across the scenic and infamous Golden Gate bridge lies Marin County.  Quaint towns, with tree lined streets, award-winning schools, beautiful homes for a wide range of price points, sizes, and aesthetics, wonderful parks for children to play, local and popular hotspots to shop, eat and frequent.

The communities of Marin County are known for their community-focused towns, nature-oriented, with so much to offer their residents.

 

Sausalito

Your first introduction to Marin County as you cross the Golden Gate Bridge is Sausalito - A slice of paradise along the Marin County coast.

Its close proximity to San Francisco offers dazzling views of the city across the bay.

The city’s allure comes from its wooded hillsides dotted with modern homes and its harbor awash in yachts and houseboats.

At Sausalito’s small but energetic center, residents and visitors alike can enjoy the charming, international flair of local life, the arts, and an enticing range of restaurants.

 

Tiburon/Belvedere

Small coastal communities situated on lush rolling hills, curving gently around the north end of Richardson Bay, Tiburon and Belvedere offer some of the best direct views of San Francisco, the Golden Gate Bridge, and Angel Island.

Locals enjoy waterfront walking and biking along Paradise Drive or nearby Blackie's Pasture. Additionally, spend the afternoon outdoors sailing, taking in the smell of the salty air, and admiring the draw-dropping views of the surrounding cities.

The towns’ direct presence of water offers a quiet, private and nautical lifestyle.

The Tiburon International Film Festival Film brings in films from around the world, there's wine tasting at Windsor Vineyards tasting room, shopping in the elegant boutiques along Ark Row, a leafy block-long enclave of tiny shops that were once floating arks, and great restaurants along Tiburon's Main Street.

For the nautically inclined, Tiburon's Corinthian Yacht Club is host to Friday Night Races on the bay. The sight of dozens of sails in formation as these boats vie for advantage is one of the hallmarks of bay area living. Ferries to San Francisco, as well as to Angel Island State Park with its trails and magnificent views of San Francisco, leave from the dock at Tiburon.

Across the street from Larkspur’s Ferry Terminal and right off the 101, the Marin Country Mart is filled with artisan restaurants, luxury boutiques and even a central playground for the kids to run around. Grab lunch or a latte and sit outside at Rustic Bakery, indulge in Roseflower macaroons at Miette, sip a martini at Farmshop or a cold Mt. Tam IPA from Marin Brewing Company, there’s something for everyone at the Marin Country Mart. For the active type, take a spin class at SoulCycle or get your sweat on at 24-hour Fitness. All in all, it’s the perfect place to enjoy the weekend with live Jazz on Friday nights, farmer’s markets every Saturday, and Off the Grid food trucks on Sundays.
