The people in this area are very kind and friendly. Everywhere you turn, there is a smiling face and someone to greet you. Although the land area is spread out, everyone seems to know one another which makes it seem like a small town community. People are generally helpful. There is a good mix of young families and elderly couples which adds to the value of the community.

There are so many local businesses around Marin County. Being on of the wealthiest counties in the state helps us maintain good quality products in stores and allows most necessary items to be bought. The products are affordable and most businesses and it helps that they are located in a beautiful area.
People are healthy and concerned about their environmental footprints. It is expensive to live here but the hiking and beauty are worth it.
