Fairfax is a close-knit, family friendly community with a history that continues to shape its culture. Surrounded by extensive open space, the town is a hiking and mountain biking Mecca. It is preserved through the local advocacy of environmental sustain-ability and community building. The quaint downtown has many stores, charming restaurants, and the most vibrant nightlife in Marin County. Many events take place year round as well.
Buying a home in Fairfax is reasonable by Marin standards. It is situated among the picturesque sylvan setting of Northern California, enjoys a Mediterranean climate, and is considered the most progressive of Marin’s eleven incorporated cities, yet home prices in Fairfax are under the median prices for the rest of the county. The town is also included in the distinguished Ross Valley School District.
