San Anselmo, a quaint, inviting town bordering San Rafael, Ross and Fairfax, continues to maintain its small town charm. The main shopping area is a welcoming curving boulevard of boutiques, coffee shops, galleries, antique shops and popular restaurants, including Madcap, Insalatas, Marinitas, cucina sa, and one of my favorite Marin lunch spots, M.H. Bread and Butter. The most visible landmark in town, a beautiful stone castle that overlooks San Anselmo, is actually the San Francisco Theological Seminary, established in 1892 to train Presbyterian clergy.
In addition to the postcard-perfect downtown filled with wonderful boutiques and restaurants, San Anselmo’s main shopping center is the Redhill Shopping Center, anchored by Safeway and CVS Pharmacy. San Anselmo stands at the crossroads of Sir Francis Drake and Red Hill Avenue, offering two options to drive to Highway 101. Golden Gate Transit also serves San Anselmo, with express commuter buses into San Francisco. You can read more about San Anselmo HERE and HERE, or watch a brief video overview.
The Ross Valley School District serves both San Anselmo and Fairfax and is very highly regarded by parents. There are many hiking trails nearby offering options for both hikers and bicyclists.
San Anselmo’s sunny climate, inviting downtown, many recreational activities, excellent schools (GreatSchools.org ranks San Anselmo schools 9 out of 10 as of this writing) and strong sense of community make it a wonderful place to live.
