Just ten minutes north of San Francisco, Mill Valley is nestled below majestic Mt. Tamalpais and is reminiscent of a picturesque European village with its charming downtown center and natural beauty. Surrounded by national parks, including Muir Woods, Mill Valley’s lush landscape of hills and canyons are a favorite place for residents and visitors who enjoy hiking, mountain biking, walking and running.
The history of Mill Valley began with John Reed. Subsequent to the acquisition of a large land grant in 1834, Reed built a sawmill in 1836 on Cascade Creek to provide wood for the construction of his home. The mill, which gave Mill Valley its name, is now a welcoming retail village and stands among the towering redwoods in Old Mill Park, a few blocks from downtown.
Downtown activities center around Lytton Square, where people gather for coffee at the Depot Bookstore & Café , a game of chess in the square or meeting up with family and friends in one of the fashionable boutiques or restaurants that fill the downtown area.
