Spend a Saturday hanging out in the relaxing and unpretentious Fairfax and you will see why the charm of this eclectic town is hard to resist. You can sunbathe in the park, take a yoga class, grab dinner and see a live band all within a radius of a few blocks. The range of businesses is extensive for such a small downtown, with an organic market, traditional grocery store, a brewery, bakery, coffee shop, ice cream parlor, clothing stores, hardware store, nursery, bike shops, surf shop and much more. Fairfax residents have resisted big chains coming into town, so everything has a friendly, local feel. With a variety of restaurants, two nightclubs, and several bars Fairfax is a hot spot at night by Marin standards. However, it is the abundance of warm days and outdoor activities that really seal the deal. Fairfax is the birthplace of mountain biking; both bikers and hikers are drawn to the popular trails at Deer Park, Lake Lagunitas, and nearby Cataract Falls. With the proximity to the beach, Point Reyes and San Geronimo Valley, people come from all over to enjoy the fun. Great schools, including Manor Elementary, White Hill Middle and Sir Francis Drake High School round out the incredible array of amenities that Fairfax has to offer.
