Located just across the Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco, picturesque Marin County has it all - golden hills, beautiful views, gorgeous coastlines, open spaces, perfect weather, and a laidback lifestyle, all within close proximity of the city and wine country.
Well known for its natural beauty and outdoor recreation, Marin’s natural sites include the Muir Woods, the Marin Headlands, Stinson Beach, Point Reyes National Seashore, and Mount Tamalpais. Thousands of acres of open space make Marin a destination for hiking, bird-watching, running, cycling and mountain biking, surfing, sailing, kayaking, and horseback riding.
Within Marin’s many charming communities you will find a variety of art festivals, galleries and public art installations, while live music, theater and independent cinema can also be enjoyed on any night of the week. You can tour the galleries in downtown Sausalito while appreciating the views of the San Francisco skyline; take in a live show at Mill Valley’s famed Throckmorton Theatre; visit the Marin County Cultural Center, one of Frank Lloyd Wright's last major commissions, in San Rafael; or take a stroll down Novato’s recently restored Grant Avenue.
