We used to be the biggest San Francisco snobs you've ever met. We thought it would be impossible to live anywhere else. When we started looking at what 1 million dollars would buy there, we were horrified. So we lined up some houses to see in Marin, specifically San Rafael. We walked into the second house on the list and IT WAS OVER! That was 6 years ago and we never looked back.!
We have SUN, and you can grow tomatoes in your yard. Our downtown is quaint and clean. Our streets don't smell like pee. You don't pass thugs when you enter your bank, and you don't have D.P.T. trying to suck the life out of you. There weather is fabulous and a whopping 75% of Marin is protected open space for hiking and biking. You may find deer standing in your driveway, but if you find a skunk or raccoon, the County will come and remove it for FREE because the service is included in your taxes! AND if you have children, Marin has the highly coveted- award-winning public schools. No more private school tuition!
Now we flip a coin to see who has to go to The City. Marin County is Heaven 12 minutes from S.F.
