Family-friendly Mill Valley is all about schools, sports and culture. Nestled at the foot of Mount Tamalpais and just minutes from San Francisco, homes in this quaint Marin County town range from small cottages to multimillion-dollar estates tucked away on winding, narrow lanes under the redwoods. Coffee is king in Mill Valley. Downtown there are three separate coffee shops that do a brisk business. At the Depot, as the sunny town center is called, moms and dads with strollers, kids on tricycles, and teenagers kicking hacky sacks relax in the open-air plaza, which now houses an independent bookstore and cafe.
The Depot is also a jumping-off spot for hikers and mountain bikers heading up the trails of Mount Tamalpais. Nightlife in Mill Valley is anchored by Sweetwater Music Hall and the Throckmorton Theater which both host many well-known local and national musical and cultural shows. As the beautifully groomed playing fields at the MV Community Center and all around town attest, sports are always in season in Mill Valley with soccer, baseball, softball and lacrosse leagues all extremely popular. There's a very good reason Mill Valley is often included in national magazines' listings as one of the best small towns in America.
