Marin has only two sizeable cities, and one of them is Novato, with a population of 55,000. Its numerous neighborhoods have personalities of their own – from luxury waterside homes in Bel Marin Keyes, to the community of Hamilton, an army air force base morphed into a handsome new community developed over the last 20 years. For outdoor activity, Mount Burdell Open Space is perfect for a family outing: its wide fire roads and loop trails make it accessible for children. Stafford Lake and its meadows, redwood groves, and winding creeks also provide a wonderful outing. Shopping opportunities are scattered around the country, but Grant Street, the city’s historic downtown, features unique shops and a diverse selection of restaurants. Locals line up for the renowned breakfasts at Marvin’s, and sip California wine at attractive tasting rooms. They also go to the source: the wineries of Sonoma are just minutes away.
