Bordered by The Bay and rolling hills, San Rafael is spread out, diverse, eclectic and vibrant. The epicenter is the flourishing downtown, which stretches for several blocks and offers great food, live music, books, coffee and various boutiques. During the summer on Thursday afternoons, 4th street is closed to host music and a street fair that attracts thousands. Every Sunday at the Marin Civic Center you'll find Marin's largest Farmer's Market.
Some of Marin's most notable architecture can be found in San Rafael including Mission San Rafael Arcangel and the Marin Civic Center, which was designed by renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright and completed in 1962. The housing stock varies in price and is comprised of Victorians, Mid-century Eichler's and custom homes perched within the Lucas Valley hillsides.
Nearby China Camp State Park offers access to the Bay, mountain and road biking, hiking and campgrounds.
