Tiburon is not your every day town. Its is a small island North of San Francisco and home to the wealthy. Every house or property here is no cheaper than $1.5m. With that, comes a lot of nice people but also many entitled people so be prepared for that!

Tiburon is small, safe, and clean. It has amazing views and is its own little bike route . Not many people know about it, so it doesn't get a ton of traffic. But it is a popular tourist destination since you can take the ferry to and from Angel Island or San Francisco. Depending on which side of the Tiburon peninsula you are are on, you can either see the Richmond Bridge, Berkeley, Oakland, and the Bay Bridge, or the beautiful San Francisco skyline with the Golden Gate beaming over the Pacific. Tiburon has a few upscale restaurants and boutiques all within the same vicinity of each other, but is typically known for its real estate and family oriented neighborhood.
A very beautiful place, lots of nature and paths that overlook the bay. You can see San Francisco from it, which is very nice. Cool shops and places to eat within walking distance from the houses.
