When purchasing homes for sale in Fairfax, you're also purchasing a history. There's still a whiff of 60s counter-culture in Fairfax, where the Jefferson Airplane once played softball with the Grateful Dead. This town of 7500 residents that sits just north of Mt Tam is 30 minutes from San Francisco, and 17 miles from Pt Reyes. Fairfax offers that rare thing in Marin: affordability.
The heart of Fairfax is Broadway Boulevard. Parallel to Sir Frances Drake, which is the main traffic corridor heading west toward Pt Reyes, Broadway is a perfect walking street where locals shop at the Coffee Roastery, purchase fresh local produce at the farmer's market, and duck into Fairfax Variety for toys, tchochkes, and old-timey candy. If Fairfax feels like it is living in a time warp, that's just fine with its residents who have passed ordinances prohibiting chain stores, plastic bags, and Styrofoam takeout food packaging. The art deco movie theater on Broadway, and nightclub 19 Broadway which features live music are at the center of the action when it comes to nightlife in Fairfax.
We at SFNorth have a soft spot for Fairfax. Spend a Saturday hanging out in the relaxed and unpretentious downtown and you’ll see why. You can sunbathe in the park, take a yoga class, grab dinner, and see a live band or movie all within a radius of a few blocks. The range of businesses is really pretty extensive for such a small downtown, with an organic market, traditional grocery store, a brewery, bakery, ice cream parlor, clothing stores, hardware store, nursery, bike shops, surf shop, and more. Residents wouldn’t tolerate big chains coming into town, so everything has a friendly, local feel.
