Tiburon’s waterfront location, along with its easy access to San Francisco makes it a very desirable location to live. Many commuters take the ferry to San Francisco, which leaves from a dock on Main Street.
Once a major railroad terminus, Tiburon has transformed the old railroad right of way into a pleasant walking and bicycling path. It begins at Blackie’s Pasture, named after an old swaybacked horse that once lived there. On weekends and evenings, you’ll find many residents enjoying a brisk walk along the path, with children or dogs in tow. Much of Tiburon’s waterfront facing San Francisco is free of development, with a wide grassy ribbon, a perfect place to picnic with friends and family.
Locals need go no further than Tiburon’s historic downtown for exceptional food. Restaurants on the bayside incorporate decks extending over the water with views of the yacht harbor, San Francisco and Angel Island. On sunny weekend afternoons Sam’s Anchor Café is a bustling draw for the millennial crowd. Locals enjoy the convenience of several large groceries and a drug store, not far from downtown.
