Geographically, West Marin is the largest swath of rural land in Marin County, hugging the windswept coast, surrounding peaceful Tomales Bay, and encompassing the bucolic agricultural landscapes of Lucas Valley, Nicasio Valley, and Point Reyes. But we all know geography is only one factor in what makes a place special.
