“This is paradise” ~ The reaction of most people when they find Marin County!
With 13 small towns and 14 villages arrayed across hills and valleys, between ocean and bay, Marin offers amazing access both to nature and the sophistication of San Francisco. San Francisco is only a few miles away over the Golden Gate Bridge and the East Bay over the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge. There are scenic ferry boat rides across the Bay from Larkspur, Tiburon, and Sausalito. The wine country of Sonoma and Napa is half an hour away.
Central to Marin is Mount Tamalpais with wooded peaks rising to 2,576 feet. To the west is the Pacific Ocean with miles of pristine shoreline and on two sides the San Francisco Bay. To assure our paradise, over 80% of Marin is protected open space and state and national parks.

Marin begins in the south at the Golden Gate Recreational Area and extends north to Estero Americano, just south of Valley Ford in Sonoma County.
