Bohemian and true to its roots, Fairfax, is a throwback town with a big personality. The fact that it is the farthest west of any other town in Marin probably makes it a little easier to remain independent minded. It is rumored that Mountain Biking started here and there is a museum to commemorate the sport. Music is in the air here and as is a clear focus on the arts. It is also the closest launch point to beautiful West Marin.
