An idyllic location beneath Mount Tamalpais draws many to Mill Valley. Here homes are built along narrow, winding hillside roads surrounded by redwood trees. The heights can also be accessed on foot by a series of paths and steps climbing the steep slopes, and the brave can enter the annual Dipsea Race – the oldest trail race in America – a grueling 7.4-mile course on stairs and steep trails. The town center of this close-knit community has the feel of a European village, with boutiques, salons, restaurants, and in the town square a much beloved bookshop. It is a village with a strong artistic heritage, which it nurtures with arts and film festivals, an outdoor play series on a mountaintop, and Shakespeare among the redwoods.
