Mill Valley Reviews

3 reviews
Mill Valley is located in one of the wealthiest counties in America. Over the last 10-15 years Mill Valley has become a more modern community. However, Mill Valley has a huge lack in diversity in the community. Majority of the residents are caucasians. If one could afford to live in this town they would experience exceedingly safe neighborhoods, exceptional public schools and a refreshing healthy living environment.

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.
