This is a very quaint and small town. Delicious restaurants with lots of food choices to pick from. Less than an hour away from the beaches, hiking trails, and a theater with weekly comics and music shows. Almost everything is biking or walking distance.

I enjoy the landscape - the area is absolutely beautiful. The schools are wonderful, especially the high school. There is definitely a 'Marin' vibe, meaning that people are generally wealthy and some are a bit snobby, but it's an amazing place to live.
