Spectacular weather make Larkspur a wonderful place both to visit and to live. Larkspur is a charming community with a distinctive small-town flavor, situated at the foot of scenic Mount Tamalpais. A picturesque main street, historic Victorian homes, and the architectural award-winning Larkspur Landing create a unique ambiance.

This city of 12,000 residents is tucked away at the base of Mt. Tamalpais halfway between Sausalito and San Rafael. Larkspur is far enough away from Highway 101 to give you a feeling of seclusion, while at the same time it is close enough to provide for easy highway/mass transit access. With its distinguishing architectural features, historical downtown district, and the residents' commitment to preserving a small town ambience, Larkspur has been labeled "typical of a small California town at the turn of the century." Magnolia Avenue adds to the town’s enchantment. A medley of wonderful and trendy shops, boutiques, restaurants, cafes, and galleries line the attractive streets.

Primarily an inland community, the area of Larkspur that fronts the water is home to the county's largest ferry terminal, Larkspur Landing. The ferries offer dramatic views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, Angel Island, and the City skyline as you make your way towards the historic San Francisco Ferry Building.
