Along the northern part of San Francisco Bay is Novato, a city with 3,600 acres of open space that makes it attractive for hikers and mountain bikers, especially at Stafford Lake Park and 1,558-foot-high Mount Burdell.

Novato garners high marks in education with its high-achieving Novato Unified School District, and the strong local economy is filled with several successful biotech and small technology companies along with a variety of retail centers.

Healthcare is also a strong sector led by Novato Community Hospital and Novato Healthcare Center, and the city’s resurgent downtown includes a robust Old Town district.
