Cross the Golden Gate Bridge to the north, and you’ll come across scenic Mill Valley 14 miles away, a gorgeous trove of European architecture in a woodsy enclave. Situated at the base of Mount Tamalpais, Mill Valley is nestled within the redwoods. Home styles here range from streamlined and contemporary to rustic with Old World charm.
Mill Valley boasts an incredible selection of family-owned eateries. La Ginestra has been serving homemade, traditional Italian cuisine to the Mill Valley community since 1964. Their handcrafted ravioli, crispy pizzas, and decadent pasta dishes are hearty and comforting. As well, their Sorrento Bar, located adjacent to the main dining room, serves small plates and a full drink menu, making it the perfect place to catch up with old friends or enjoy an intimate meal.
Playa offers a hybrid indoor-outdoor dining experience with a menu stocked with farm-to-table Mexican dishes. This trendy eatery is fun and festive, serving signature cocktails best enjoyed under the string lights on their patio. Dim sum joint Harmony blends Cantonese cuisine with the freshest ingredients on the market to create unforgettable dishes. Upscale trattoria Piatti serves elegant Italian fares in a sleek dining room that overlooks the water. Their open-concept kitchen immerses diners in the culinary experience, while their wood-fired oven bakes flawless pies for their pizza menu.
Live music takes the stage in Mill Valley at Sweetwater Music Hall whenever folk, blues, and rock bands come to town. Sweetwater’s attached café makes grabbing dinner before the show a breeze. Their Open Mic Nights allow local residents to perform their favorite songs. Mill Valley also provides ample opportunities to explore the great outdoors. Muir Beach is breathtakingly beautiful with a wide expanse of sand that is easily accessible by a 450-foot pedestrian bridge connecting the parking lot to the shore. Although swimming is typically ill-advised due to strong undercurrents in the Pacific Ocean, Muir Beach is perfect for an afternoon of birdwatching or an evening stroll. Three miles east of Muir Beach sits Muir Woods, a stunning landscape of old-growth redwood trees. This portion of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area is covered in trails and groves to adventure through and mountain and ocean views to find. Nearby Mount Tamalpais State Park has hiking trails, picnicking spots, and birdwatching opportunities around the county’s most notable peak.
Mill Valley is fortunate to have a wealth of exquisite educational facilities in town, including Edna Maguire Elementary, Old Mill School, Park School, Strawberry Point, and Tamalpais Valley Elementary.
Trustworthy and loyal, we believe that no client should settle for anything less than a well-managed and winning team.
