San Anselmo  is located in the center of Ross Valley, 1.5 miles west of San Rafael, and 20 miles north of San Francisco. It has an historic, charming downtown, packed with restaurants, cafes, boutiques, antique shops, and art galleries. Many young families love its small-town feel, excellent schools, and extensive array of recreational opportunities. Mount Tamalpais, which covers about 25,000 acres, dominates the view to the south and affords easy access to hiking, biking, and horseback riding trails. In town, numerous parks feature tennis courts, sports fields, playgrounds, and an Elder’s Garden, a quiet spot for chess, checkers, and horseshoes. The arts are an integrally important part of San Anselmo, and the town is home to several nationally known artists, directors and actors.
