"Mill Valley is one of the jewels in a necklace of beautiful towns ... across the Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco."

Mill Valley has a small town charm yet it is in the heart of the Bay Area. Nestled at the foot of Mount Tamalpais, it extends to the marshland surrounding Richardson Bay. Residents and visitors alike enjoy hiking and running its beautiful landscape.
