Mill Valley: A Charming Retreat
Undoubtedly one of the most charming towns in America, Mill Valley has something for everyone.
Just a handful of miles away from San Francisco, Mill Valley is a charmingly beautiful retreat; perfect for any kind of nature lover, it’s the place to go for a hiking vacation, to admire nature’s work or to enjoy cultural events.
The town of Mill Valley is known for its European flair and lively cultural activities (which happen to attract a host of famous names). With well-known events such as Mill Valley Film Festival, The Mountain Play and the Marin Mountain Bike, Mill Valley won’t disappoint visitors who are looking for an unforgettable California experience. It’s the ideal getaway for both families and couples looking for a romantic retreat.
The typography in Mill Valley is nothing short of spectacular. One of my favorite things to do while in Mill Valley is drive the narrow and winding cliffside residential streets and look at the houses. Some are tucked away in redwood-surrounded valleys, while others, perched on the cliffside amongst the towering redwoods, are quite the vertigo-inducing sight. Yes, that’s right; here, houses are built right into the sides of cliffs. 50-foot drops under the living rooms of these homes is considered normal.
However, what foreigners and locals mostly love about this charming slice of California is its surroundings. Let’s have a look at the charming environment in which Mill Valley is graciously located, and how you could enjoy it at its best.
