Local Area and Shopping

 Marin County is in Northern California, across the Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco. The Marin Headlands has Golden Gate Bridge views, trails and the 1855 Point Bonita Lighthouse. North are the giant redwood trees of Muir Woods National Monument. Mount Tamalpais State Park’s namesake peak has panoramic views of the bay and you can even see the city! Frank Lloyd Wright even designed the Marin County Civic Center located just a few minutes north in San Rafael. 

Just a 5 minute drive, or 15-20 minute walk you can arrive at two major shopping centers, The Village at Corte Madera and the Town Center Corte Madera. Both have amazing shops and restaurants. The Town Center also has a CVS Phamarcy and Safeway Grocery Store, with Strabucks inside.
