The city of Larkspur, with its charming main street, attractive homes, and close-knit neighborhoods, has become one of the most sought-after areas in Marin county. Larkspur is just 12 miles north of the Golden Gate Bridge and sits at the foot of Mount Tamalpais.
Larkspur and its neighboring city Corte Madera are referred to at the “Twin Cities.” They share public schools and police services.
Though just a few blocks long, the picturesque main street of Larkspur (Magnolia Avenue) is the source of the small town appeal: sidewalk cafes, unique restaurants, an art house movie theater, City Hall, the firehouse, public library and one of two town parks seem to be right from a movie set. In fact, Larkspur’s downtown (between the Lark Theater and the Lark Creek Inn) has been designated as a state and city historic district and is officially listed on the National Register of Historic Places because the buildings are representative of commercial architecture that was typical of small California towns at the turn of the 20th century.
