One of the biggest perks of living in Mill Valley is its lengthy history
. Surviving world wars, fires, earthquakes, and more, Mill Valley has a lurid backstory that will make for interesting dinner table conversation no matter where you move. But each neighborhood has its unique perks as well—find out which one is best for you and your family.
If you want to feel special, you’ve got to move to the heart of Mill Valley and Marin County, which is the Downtown area. It’s a peaceful community that is somewhat detached from the surrounding communities. It’s quiet and laid-back, so you won’t have to worry about any lip syncing TikTok influencers having raucous parties on a nightly basis. Plus, the houses are cute bungalows, so if you’ve ever wanted to live like a witch from a fairy tale, this is the place for you.
If you’re a big spender and want people to know exactly how well off you are, then there is no better neighborhood than Strawberry. Almost exclusively full of large estates and opulent manors, people will intuit just how affluent you are the moment you utter the name of the fruity neighborhood, which has everything from mini-estates to sweeping ranch houses. Plus, there are stunning views of the surrounding Richardson Bay since it is situated on a small peninsula.
If you prefer rustic charms and the vibe of living in the rural countryside, then Tam Valley is probably your best bet. Many of the older homes have been renovated with original lumber from the trees in the area. It’s quiet and famous for being built on top of an old Eucalyptus tree farm where more than 175,000 trees once resided, so your house will probably be constructed from their skeletons (or at least resting on top of the place they once stood).
Muir Woods is one of the smaller residential areas in Mill Valley, which is great for antisocial people and introverts. Fewer neighbors mean less forced social interaction. Even better, the entire area is immersed in nature, sitting right outside the Muir Woods National Monument
, which features a redwood park and nature preserve. Outdoorsy people will love it, and those who aren’t outdoorsy can at least pretend they’re going to start working out because they’re so close to hiking trails. (Any excuse to buy another pair of yoga pants, right?)
