Marin County

A Remarkable Place

Lifestyle Video

Marin County is truly a remarkable place.  It is not only blessed with incredible beauty but it is also situated close to urban San Francisco, the wine country counties of Sonoma and Napa, and the industrial and commercial East Bay.  The Mediterranean climate provides year-round recreational opportunities.

Over 40 percent of Marin County land is protected open space in the form of local, state and national parks including large parcels of agricultural land held in trust in West Marin.  This provides exceptional outdoor activities including hiking, biking (mountain and road), sailing, rock-climbing, beachcombing and a variety of other outdoor sports.

Public schools in Marin County are some of the best in California.  Test scores are high and communities are heavily involved in maintaining these high standards.

Because development is carefully planned and limited in scope, property values in Marin County are some of the highest in the nation.  But consider the attraction of living in an area with world-class beauty, a temperate climate, a multitude of outdoor activities, great schools and easy access to both urban and rural environments..
