The Hot 101

Editors' Choice 2011

Photos by Tim Porter

Known for its magical beauty, rich history and easy access to San Francisco, Marin County is one of the most coveted places to live on the planet. In this fourth annual Editors’ Choice feature, we shine a light on (with a nod to our main thoroughfare) 101 reasons why our idyllic community — from the bayside town of Sausalito to the rolling hills of West Marin — is second to none. Please join in to share your favorites by posting comments at the bottom of this story. See Google map below.
