Welcome to Tiburon
tucked into the Southeastern edge of Marin County, there’s something about Tiburon … maybe it’s the light, maybe it’s the views, maybe it’s the abundance of glistening waterfront dotted with sailboats. It’s the kind of place that draws you in, slows you down, and makes you want to stay for a while.
See below for our five favorite things about this charming town, or check out the video here.
The Tiburon Ferry because nothing beats commute by boat. The Blue and Gold Fleet takes you from Tiburon to San Francisco’s Pier 40 and Ferry Building in just 30 minutes … coffee, cocktails, and world-class views included. If open space and serenity is more your speed, a 10 minute boat ride will deliver you to the shore of Angel Island State Park.
Main Street - the heart of Tiburon’s downtown - looks like a picture-perfect movie set. But don’t be fooled by the easygoing feeling … locals know that the food is good and the energy is high on the back deck of Sam’s Anchor Cafe. We’re also partial to Waypoint Pizza, Madison Boutique, Caffe Acri, and Christopher Salon & Home.
Waterfront everywhere … sail on it (Corinthian Yacht Club), run, bike, or walk alongside it (Tiburon Linear Park), picnic next to it (Shoreline Park + Woodlands Market) … or just gaze and feel grateful.
But there’s also land - 367 acres of pristine beauty, to be exact, on Ring Mountain and the Tiburon Peninsula. Truly some of the most beautiful hiking in Marin County, Tiburon is home to open, rolling hillsides that make us feel like we’re starring in the Sound of Music. Keep an eye our for the Hippie Swing, a locals’ favorite hidden in the hillsides.
All this beauty and brains, too! Tiburon’s Reed Unified School District is considered one of the most sought-after in the Bay Area, with students consistently surpassing local and state averages on Smarter Balanced standardized tests. The district is comprised of three schools - Reed School for Kindergarten - 2nd grade; Bel Aire serving grades 3-5; and Del Mar Middle School covering 6th - 8th.
