CHARMING & FAMILY FRIENDLY
From sweeping San Francisco Bay vistas and towering redwood trees to Mount Tamalpais peeking above the summer fog, Marin County is an area of superlative natural beauty. With a population of about 250,000 people living in 520 square miles, Marin County offers its residents plenty of room to roam. Most of Marin’s population lives along its eastern side near San Francisco Bay, while the rest of the county contains large areas of parklands, open space, and agricultural lands. The Marin Agricultural Land Trust, created in 1980 by a coalition of ranchers and environmentalists, is dedicated to preserving the remaining family farms, dairy, and cattle operations through voluntary conservation easements.
For those who want a relaxing way to commute to work in San Francisco, regular ferries from Larkspur, Sausalito, and Tiburon provide ample scenery, along with convenience. There is also the Golden Gate Transit bus lines, and, of course, driving into the city over the incomparable Golden Gate Bridge.
