"Great schools and convenient location"

I lived in Greenbrae for 12 years and raised my kids here. Awesome schools with great parent involvement and very easy access to many other great surrounding areas. The views from much of Greenbrae are stunning, and there is a nice walking path along the water. The current homes sit on former dairy land, so it's an area less woodsy than surrounding Kentfield and Larkspur, but an easy ten minute drive out to wonderful trails. Greenbrae doesn't have a downtown per se, so Bon Air Shopping Center serves as a sort of surrogate meeting place and town center. This is a great place to raise a family, with lots of parent participation and a strong academic program which prepares kids for a bright future.
  • Highly ranked schools
  • Great walking and biking paths
  • Close to the freeway and ferry
  • Lack of diversity in restaurants
  • Bedroom community - not much nightlife!
  • Traffic can get bad on Sir Francis Drake Blvd. at times
