Tiburon offers a waterfront location, stunning views, and a town of fewer than 10,000 residents. Some of the most beautiful homes in Marin can be found in Tiburon. The Tiburon International Film Festival brings in films from around the world. There's wine tasting at Windsor Vineyards tasting room, shopping in the elegant boutiques along Ark Row, a leafy block-long enclave of tiny shops that were once floating arks, and great restaurants along Tiburon's Main Street.
For the nautically inclined, Tiburon's Corinthian Yacht Club is host to Friday Night Races on the bay. The sight of dozens of sails in formation as these boats vie for advantage is one of the hallmarks of bay area living. Ferries to San Francisco, as well as to Angel Island State Park with its trails and magnificent views of San Francisco, leave from the dock at Tiburon.
Tiburon's parks include Blackie's Pasture, named after an old swaybacked horse that once lived here. Excellent public schools.
