living. Mill Valley is a host to many schools, restaurants, and parks that are perfect for all
audiences and interests.

amazing pizza or salad. The area has now been turned into a cute shopping area with a
coffee shop and a handful of small boutiques.

Avenue with an authentic and famous taste. Enjoy anything from a massive bistec
sandwich to their classic pollo al horno (make sure to ask for their pink mayo!)
Tamalpie makes some of the best pizza in mill valley and it is an amazing spot for
family dinners. They are best known for their seasonal, organic, and local ingredients as
well as cozy indoor and outdoor seating.
Sycamore park is a safe walking distance from many schooling opportunities for
all ages. Park School or Marin Horizon are excellent elementary schools that are great
depending on what you are looking for. Marin Horizon is private and much smaller and
amazing for a more one on one style of learning whereas Park School is an amazing
public school that is located on the East Blithedale side of the neighborhood.

neighborhood and is an amazing place to prepare for the next steps of highschool. It
offers a wide variety of clubs and sports as well as many academic opportunities to
match any kid's educational needs.

district. Tam is known for its amazing sports and academic opportunities. As an added
bonus, it's an easy walking distance from many amazing lunch spots.
The main park in the area is Boyle park and it has everything you could possibly
need. There are multiple tennis courts that also often offer camps for all ages especially
throughout the summer. On the backside of the park there is a huge open field where
youth recreational soccer teams play as well as plenty of other sporting equipment to fill
any of your interests. In addition to the playground, the large picnic area is a great
option for family get-togethers and summer hangouts.
Sycamore Park is also a great option for something a little bit closer and a little
bit more secluded. It is still a beautiful park but it tends to be visited by mainly people
from the surrounding neighborhood which makes for a great environment to meet new
people and friends.
