San Francisco was just voted America's best city by Business week: http://www.businessweek.com/articles/2012-09-26/san-francisco-is-americas-best-city-in-2012
Our home is located in Mill Valley, Marin County approximately seven minutes across the Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco. Our immediate neighborhood consists of about twenty houses on a hill with easy access to the freeway. We are on a private street with only one way in and one way out on over 1/3 acre of land, albeit most is a somewhat steep hill. We are situated on a peninsula with water in all directions. The two closest towns are Mill Valley and Tiburon. Mill Valley is the larger of the two with many good restaurants and shopping, galleries, and a cinema. Tiburon is located at the point of the peninsula and has several restaurants with outdoor seating and spectacular views of the City of San Francisco and the Golden Gate and Bay Bridges. Ferry service into San Francisco is available from Tiburon. Sausalito is possibly the most famous of the cities in Marin County. It is the first town you reach after crossing the Golden Gate Bridge. There are many galleries and, once again, drinking and dining establishments overlooking the City. And, of course, there is San Francisco, the Wine Country, Muir Woods and the Ocean are just moments away.
Europeans love Marin County's quaint towns because each is distinct and unique and very safe.
