Historic downtown that's a great mix of modern charm and classic Marin. You've got the dive bar - The Silver Peso - mixed in next to antique shops and gourmet coffee.

Seaside village full of appreciation for art. Incredible views of the city on a clear day. Floating houseboats with a rich history. Active fishing and boating area. Rent a kayak or a paddle board. Or just watch it all go by while enjoying a beverage.

Head for Fourth street in San Rafael for a classic small city vibe. This little boulevard is where American Graffiti was filmed so long ago. While most of the great treasures are on 4th street, you'll also find the historic San Rafael Mission and delicious eats like Sol Food on some of the smaller side streets.

Folks like to "keep it weird" in Fairfax. It's a town that retains Northern California's artistic, individualistic spirit. Drop by the Tea Temple for a visit with friends or some time to relax. Or rock out to live music in one of several local bars. There is hiking and biking all around.

Favorite Coffeeshops
Incredible pastries. (The almond croissant!) Great lunch too. They now make packaged goods. And have numerous locations. If the Larkspur Landing store is too crowded for you, try the one on Magnolia. It's also quite close.

Food scene
Gotts got famous for their burgers. (Lines for blocks in their original St. Helena location). But their menu is so much more than that. Fresh ingredients. Great for take out or eat in. And they're now just a stroll away at Bon Air Center.

Deliciously unique and fresh Puerto Rican food. Often a line out the door if you go in person (which can be fun, or a hassle, depending on your mood). They also deliver!

Our FAVORITE Thai food place. Small and local. A place where they remember your name. Fantastically fresh and delicious food. Go for the sweet potato appetizers and Ba Mi chicken. And, of course, the curry! No deliveries, but they are a 10 minute drive away.

The freshest sushi is just minutes away. Restaurant itself is pretty basic. Located at Marin Country Mart filled with all kind of other fun things to explore. We love the Dynamite Roll, the udon noodles and every bit of their nigiri sushi. Dine there or pick up some to bring home.

For a special night out, you can't miss with the Buckeye (though you have to make a reservation or get lucky finding a spot at the bar). Decadent oysters bingo is a speciality. Great old school vibe. Right along the highway, so not much around it. But oh, so good!

You want classic Italian? You want enormous servings? Want a Caesar salad composed and tossed table side? Want to feel like you've travelled back in time? Marin Joe's is your place. Delicious food, a bar/lounge with live piano player most nights, and a clientele that has been dedicated to Joe's for DECADES. No reservations, though, so be prepared to wait.

Larkspur Ferry is a great way to get into the city

The Larkspur Ferry is quite close to our guest suite. Even if you have a car, it is a great way to visit the city. You get a beautiful ride on the bay, views for days and you're dropped at the SF Ferry Building which is FULL of great shops and restaurants. (see additional listing in guidebook). Fare is $12.50 each way. Ferry schedules and further info found here: https://www.goldengate.org/ferry/route-schedule/larkspur-san-francisco/?backurl=%2Fferry%2Fschedules-maps%2F
