San Rafael / Marin Area
San Rafael is well known for its arts, entertainment and culture. Whether you’re lounging on a beach, dining at some of the freshest restaurants in Northern California, or being enveloped by the beautiful melodies of the Marin Symphony, each day will bring forth both new surprises and welcomed favorites.
Nearly 85% of Marin County has been protected from development through open space purchases, federal parkland, watershed lands and strict agricultural zoning. Discover unspoiled beaches and wilderness as you visit the Point Reyes National seashore, Golden Gate National recreation park and of course the majesty of Muir Woods redwood forest.
