The Marin County line starts halfway across the Golden Gate Bridge and continues north along Highway 101 for about 30 miles where it exits Marin County and enters Sonoma County. Marin is bordered by the Pacific Ocean on the West and San Pablo Bay on the East. Over half of Marin County is land protected by parks and open space preserves allowing those who like to be outdoors an abundance of options.
Marin County is an expensive place to live, so if one chooses to live here, knowledge of all the County has to offer helps to justify the inflated price tag. I have tried to inform you of some of the reasons I think that Marin County is an amazing place to live, through stories and forty years of personal experiences.
Following is a list of most of the cities in Marin. I have described them from my perspective and I continue to edit the profiles as I experience the festivals, events and offerings each city presents. I have lived in 10 homes in Marin County, in 5 different cities, so I am familiar with some areas, more than others. With the combined efforts of my nuclear families, we have attended 11 different schools, both public and private. Because of this breadth of practical knowledge, I recognize the distinct amenities of the various cities, in addition to the dramatically different resources of each.
Please read about the following cities. Let me know if I have forgotten to include a point of interest or have described it in an inaccurate way. Contact me if you would like more information about a particular city or home. And use the links to look at current homes for sale in the neighborhood you are considering.
Enjoy and happy house hunting!
