Alto Reviews

2 reviews
Mill Valley used to be very hippie and humble, but in the past 5-10 years the wealth has become more prevalent in people and their personalities and perspectives. Despite this, I think I would choose to live here again because of how beautiful it is and the location - close to San Francisco and the ocean. I would rank this area as one of my favorites I've ever seen.
Review Alto
There has been crime that I've hear of, but Mill Valley is extremely safe and really doesn't bring in much crime.
