Small Town Countryside
The San Geronimo Valley is the sort of place where people really get to know their neighbors, and where they don’t feel the need to lock their doors. The area’s communities of Lagunitas, Forest Knolls, San Geronimo, Woodacre and Nicasio have a true small town, countryside feel while still being close enough to San Francisco for a reasonable commute and near enough to the county’s other towns for easy access to all of Marin’s services. The valley isn’t without its own amenities, with country markets and delis, two restaurants, and a small motel, but take the time to visit and you’ll see the rolling hills, wide open meadows, crystal clear creeks, and unbeatable outdoor recreations. Living here means instant access to hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, and world-class golf. Also high on San Geronimo Valley’s bragging list are the Lagunitas and San Geronimo Schools, which give parents a choice between open classroom, Montessori, and Waldorf-Inspired programs.
Dining, Retail & Entertainment Destinations
When it’s time to unwind, you can visit one of the growing number of hip restaurants, clubs, bars or bistros that line lively Divisadero Street. You’ll also find a favorite San Francisco music venue, The Independent and several funky, homegrown shops and services.
