THE HEART OF MARIN
ABOUT SAN ANSELMO
“San Anselmo is a small slice of heaven, where it really is sunny, warm and filled with good people.”
Welcome to San Anselmo! A great Town to visit and an incredible place to call home. We are located in the heart of Marin, surrounding Sir Francis Drake with winding streets, the laughter of children filling the air as they bike to school, an active community running, biking, hiking and living fully on the backside of Mt. Tam.
From world class food to stunning views, our proximity to San Francisco is only surpassed by our easy access to Point Reyes, Sonoma and Napa. Slow down and enjoy the good life with us!
What’s the secret? Maybe it is the sunny warm days, or ease of accessing fire roads that lead to epic mountain biking trails, or the range of baked goods from the gluten free Flour Craft to the heirloom grains of M.H. Bread and Butter, or the quaint San Anselmo Inn to the houses tucked amongst the redwood trees, or the small boutiques of downtown from gifts at the Fig Garden to bohemian chic designer clothing of LONGWAY.
Maybe it’s the pizza from Stefanos to Cucina to Creekside and Pizzalina. Between Comforts, Taco Janes, Valenti’s, Insalata’s, Marinitas and MadCap we have become foodie central with uniquely delicious food and great spaces. Seriously, most kids would say the secret of San Anselmo is Barton’s Bagels.
The secret of San Anselmo is the people.
We have a great community filled with artists, teachers, programmers, musicians, chefs, athletes, lawyers, marketing professionals, investment bankers and start-up entrepreneurs. We have one of the largest populations of young families starting their lives in this safe haven in the North Bay. You will meet genuinely kind people who are interesting and living some version of “their best life.”
