Larkspur is one of the most charming towns in all of Marin County, with a population of 12,000 and some of the best schools in the country. Located less than 15 miles from San Francisco, Larkspur rests in the center of the country. Marin’s ferry terminal is located in the Larkspur Landing area on the San Francisco Bay, which makes for an easy commute for passengers headed to the Financial District in San Francisco. There is also a scenic downtown, which is officially listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The main street, Magnolia Avenue, is lined with small boutique shops and an assortment of fine restaurants.
Larkspur Landing is a regional commercial hub featuring the Marin Country Mart which is centered around a lovely outdoor seating area with gorgeous views of the Bay. In addition to fine dining and retail, there is also live music on Friday nights and a farmers market on Saturdays, making this a local hotspot adding to Larkspur’s appeal.
