San Anselmo offers residents a balanced mix of community, amenities, and nature. Tucked away at the foothills of Mount Tamalpais, here, you’re more likely to find people walking or biking than driving. And with all the trails and cyclist-friendly features, like the bypasses on Center Road, which offer stunning views, it’s easy and safe to do most of your local traveling via two wheels.
On par with San Anselmo’s sweeping landscapes are the vintage homes. Victorians, Tudors, Craftsmans, Spanish-style, mid-century modern — you name it, and San Anselmo probably has it. You’ll find some of the biggest names in architecture here, including Frank Lloyd Wright, who designed the Robert Burger House during his Usonian period.
Seeking entertainment? The thriving, small-town tends to shut down early, but not too early. You’ll have plenty of time to enjoy one of San Anselmo Avenue’s many restaurants after work, and during the day, you’ll be able to frequent downtown’s quaint shops, boutiques, bookstores, and design studios. Families will appreciate San Anselmo’s highly rated schools and kid-friendly activities. And the annual tree lighting ceremony and summer movie nights are community favorites.
