Fairfax is like no other town in Marin ... maybe even California. It’s the gateway to West Marin’s great outdoors: Alpine, Bon-Tempe, Lagunitas and Kent Lakes are virtually next door. Mt. Tamalpais lies directly south and Pt. Reyes National Seashore awaits to the west. Weekends buzz with picnickers, hikers, mountain bikers, roadies and just-plain-drive-by-nature-lovers. Evenings hum with live music, (Fairfax is famous for its music scene), brew-pubs, quiet get-aways with fabulous wine cellars, movies at the Fairfax Theater ... and, of course, superb restaurants -- some of which are nearly as delightful as The Barefoot Café.
