Cheap Gas in Marinwood, San Rafael 94903

76_gas_marinwood_500

Another reason I like Marinwood-cheap gas at the new 76 station on Marinwood Ave. @ Miller Creek Rd.  The gas station is conveniently located right off the 101 Highway (Marinwood/St. Vincent exit) in the 94903 area of San Rafael; regular is $3.35 per gallon.  There is also a great smog check and certification at the station (I go there every time I need to renew smog). It is easy, cheap, local...a winner!

Hey and if that's not enough to entice you, across the street from the 76 gas station is the new Marinwood Market.  This is a fabulous new market with excellent produce, meat and fish counter, deli and sushi bar...plus they sell the most...

Why Residents of Marin County Love Living Here

Frankly, we were tired of the cold winters and knowing our family would be growing we wanted to be somewhere very kid friendly. A few years later, we are settled into San Rafael and couldn't imagine our lives anywhere else. The ease of life whether it's going to the park in the middle of winter, being close to shopping or going out to a great dinner; it's all within our reach.

I joined a Mothers Club in Marin when my daughter was born and was fortunate to meet many families who live in Marin for similar reasons. As a Realtor, I felt it was important to blog why residents of different towns love where they live. Here's what they had to say:

Oakland's Haven

The Jack London Square District in Oakland is quickly becoming a foodies' paradise.  Not only is there a great Farmer's Market every Sunday, the neighborhood has managed, even in this economy, to attract high-quality eateries like Bocanova, Chop Bar, Encuentro Cafe & Wine Bar, Miette Bakery, Blue Bottle Coffee, and the recently opened Haven.

Haven is the latest in casual, fine dining offerings from the Daniel Patterson Group (Plum-Oakland & Coi-San Francisco).  The menu is Californian cuisine prepared by Executive Chef Kim Alter and features local, fresh ingredients sure to fit all palettes.  The warm and inviting décor blends the contemporary architecture of the brand-new Jack London Artisan Food Market with the loft-style residential condos of the neighborhood.  And, it's prime waterfront...
