Larkspur is centrally located between Corte Madera, Kentfield and Greenbrae and rests peacefully amongst the trees and the bay. Originally named for the Lupine wildflowers this sought after town was settled by the Miwok Indians more the 2,000 years ago. Over the years the town has become a destination for tourists to visit and locals to relax. For those seeking a combination of quiet charm and an active lifestyle, Larkspur's moderate climate can't be beat.
Larkspur residents have the luxury of choice when it comes to schools. There are several, highly rated public and private schools located within minutes from the center of town. This community also enjoys one of the best Fourth of July parades in the area. Some of the year-long local activities include; road biking, mountain biking, wind surfing and hiking, to name a few. If you envision a "walk through town" environment, you will be pleased to discover quaint boutiques, Emporio Rulli (which takes up the majority of a block), the Lark Theater, the Larkspur Library, an old school donut shop, several great restaurants and of course the Silver Peso, one of several "dive" bars located throughout Marin County.
On the outer edge of town bordering Greenbrae you'll discover the Larkspur Ferry Terminal. For those commuting to the city the Larkspur Ferry is the only way to travel. On game days, take a roundtrip ferry from Larkspur’s backyard to the Giant's home field. Across from the terminal and recently revamped, the Marin Country Mart was transformed from a once sleepy outdoor mall into a thriving outpost of high-end boutiques and restaurants. If you're looking for a community that seems to have it all, look no further then Larkspur.
