Mill Valley is one of
Metro San Francisco's treasured communities. Located north of the
city in Marin County near San Francisco and San Pablo bays and the
majestic Pacific Ocean, Mill Valley is known for its quaint charm,
natural beauty and flavorful cultural events.
Mill Valley, an
Alpine-like village located high up on the shoulders of Mt. Tam is
primarily made up of artists and professionals. Here, towering
redwoods are woven throughout the neighborhoods giving you the
feeling of being far away from the hustle and bustle of the big
city. Mill Valley is bordered on three sides by breathtaking
parklands. To the south rests the Marin Headlands, which is part
of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. Muir Woods National
Monument is on the west, and Mt. Tamalpais State Park is on the
north. As a result, Mill Valley residents consider these their
back yards and consider themselves stewards of their environment.
Hiking, bicycling, and horseback riding are all enjoyed throughout
In the fall visitors come
here for the Mill Valley Fall Arts Festival at Old Mill Park,
featuring a diverse selection of juried arts and crafts,
entertainment, and food concessions.
