San Rafael

If you like your cities diverse, bustling, and approachable, San Rafael might be the one for you. There’s a home for every budget here, and as Marin’s biggest city, something to do every night of the week, including visiting the abundant microbreweries and restaurants on Fourth Street downtown. 

If you’re commuting to SF, you’ll appreciate the many Highway 101 access points. If public transport’s more your thing, you can take the Golden Gate Transit bus, which has wi-fi. 

If you’re looking to be outdoors, taking advantage of the sunny, Mediterranean climate, you’ll enjoy San Rafael’s proximity to nature. It is home to China Camp State Park, which surrounds a former Chinese-American shrimp-fishing village, a prehistoric shell midden, and a salt marsh. China Camp State Park is part of the San Francisco Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve and offers visitors 1,514 acres of shoreline, hiking trails, mountain biking routes, and scenic views. Sleepy Hollow Open Space Preserve is another natural wonder that San Rafael has to offer.  

Marin is famous for its farmers markets, and San Rafael doesn’t disappoint. In the summer, you can stroll through the Fourth Street Farmers Market every Thursday afternoon. And, the civic center has year-round markets on Sundays and Thursdays.
