The following list highlights some of the best neighborhoods in Marin County. Whether you’re more interested in living amid a historical background or a trendy hotspot, you’re likely to find the perfect place suited to you and your family’s needs. 

San Anselmo

San Anselmo is a cozy town in Marin County that has been voted one of the best places in the world to live if you enjoy antiquing, per Sunset Magazine. As a town with deep roots in World War II, San Anselmo values its history and has found ways of incorporating its past into its future. 

If you’re a fan of the old-time vibes, then this town should be a perfect fit. Streets are lined with many quaint boutiques, coffee shops, and trendy shopping spots. It is a great place to raise a family and has highly-rated public schools. As an added benefit, it is located near the picturesque Ross Valley.

San Rafael

San Rafael is a unique place to live as it is a culturally diverse town known for its Victorian architecture and home to several notable people from the entertainment industry. It is an upscale place to reside with a booming economy that is considered the heart of Marin County. 


Tiburon is a coastal town that looks similar to a seaside village. The town name is named after leopard sharks as “Tiburon” is the Spanish word for the formidable sea creatures, which is fitting for the scenery of the area. It is a bastion of waterfront living if you’re craving a life by the seaside.


Belvedere is a small county located close to Tiburon, and the two neighborhoods share a lot of similarities. Belvedere is even smaller than Tiburon, with a population that barely breaks 2,000.

For those who crave the feel of a small town, Belvedere might be just the place for you to foster a strong sense of community for yourself and your loved ones. Another bonus is there is plenty to do in the area, and it is an easy commute downtown to the central hub of San Francisco if you’re employed in the city.

Mill Valley

One of the biggest draws to living in Mill Valley is its state-of-the-art education. If you have a family or are in the family-planning stages, Mill Valley should be near the top of your list as the school systems are some of the best in the state. It is a gorgeous, rustic town within close proximity to places like Napa and Sonoma Valley.
