San Rafael At A Glance

As the largest city in Marin, with 30 distinct neighborhoods ranging from the tree-canopied streets surrounding Dominican University to the golf course community of sunny Peacock Gap to the boat dock homes on Loch Lomond, San Rafael has something for everyone. Historically home to one of the original Spanish Missions, The Church at Saint Raphael, today it is a bustling commuter town with peaceful, rolling vistas and a thriving downtown.
