"Nice Main Drag"

This is the neighborhood on the far northwestern end of Larkspur, just to the south of the College of Marin. There is not much to it. The main attraction to this “neighborhood” is Magnolia Avenue with its row of stores and eateries. Magnolia is too much of a speedway for this stretch to have a “small town” feel, as you might expect from what I have said so far but you will still find a cool little bakery with outdoor seating, a pizza place and Thai place. You will also find a boutique, a Masonic lodge, a cleaners and bank. (It pretty much has the feel of 1982 around here.)

That is pretty much it.
  • Nice Stores--Especially Pearl's Boutique
  • Close to the College
  • Okay for Eating
  • Magnolia Too Much of a Speedway
  • Feels a Little Like a 1980's Strip Mall
  • A Little Out of the Way
