Review of San Anselmo, California

Beautiful, friendly town - cost of living is outra

We love, love, love San Anselmo. It has great schools, is very walkable/bikeable, is not a far walk or bike from that funky town of Fairfax, everyone is friendly! Very family oriented but also lots of empty nesters still about.

The drawback is that the commute on public transportation into the city (San Francisco) can be 1.5 hours - or you have to drive on the very crowded freeway for an hour (only 35 minutes to SF if there is no traffic). If you have a flexible work situation and make lots of money, this is a great place. But in order to afford it, many folks have to work long hours and commute a distance....not so good.
