Home to just under 15,000 residents, this charming hamlet is one of the most popular destinations in Marin county. With its easy access to the city, beaches, hiking and biking with the glorious Mt Tamalpais as it’s backdrop, many folks flock to Mill Valley for the outdoor lifestyle. With a holdover to its historic hippie days in the 60’s and 70’s there is a wealth of diversity in the community even though you are more likely to see Tesla’s and Audi’s than Volkswagen buses. What we love about Mill Valley are the people. Your group of friends will likely include people from all walks of life: from architects and artists to tech entrepreneurs and investment bankers, from gardeners to asset managers, from teachers and NGOs to advertising executives and internet gurus. There is an overreaching note of acceptance in Mill Valley and a live and let live vibe that is refreshing for such a well to do town.
