Sixteen miles past San Francisco you’ll arrive at Fairfax, a town with a population of around 7,600, an impressive number of shops and restaurants and an enduring air of Northern California quirk.
Fairfax has become one of Marin's most popular towns with its' small community feel, miles of open space for biking and hiking, and close proximity to the coastal communities.
Throughout the year, Fairfax is popular with it's ongoing Arts & Crafts Fairs, Octoberfest, Parades, Classic Car shows, Film Festival and Farmers Market.
Stinson Beach and Pt. Reyes National Seashore is a short drive through West Marin; and one of the most beautiful and scenic areas in the country.
Fairfax is an environmentally conscious community with a large 'Green' base. Ordinances preventing chain stores, styrofoam packaging and plastic bags are part of the plan to retain the character of the town. The Art Deco movie theater is the center of nightlife with great restaurants and club venues for musical performances. Surrounded by open space and preserves, Fairfax is great for most outdoor activities.
