San Rafael, CA - Affordable & Beautiful

I have lived in the San Rafael City for most of my life, and I have seen tourists come in and go out. I love it here, and I do not imagine that any of the tourists have any complaints on their way through. The area is affordable, beautiful, and the community is not at all dangerous. We have some of the most top rated hotels to stay in, so you know you will be a guest in luxury. They are also pet friendly which means you're able to bring the whole family if you would like. The neighborhood I live in also has some of the best fine dining restaurants that you will ever eat at. The Crepevine is one of my favorites. When it comes to hanging out, I like bringing my family and friends down to Classic Billiards. It is a wonderful hang out spot with beer, good food, great music and wonderful people that are friendly. Beaches are right around the corner with grills, picnic tables and beautiful, soft, white sand for your toes to indulge in. I love it here. Since the sun is almost always shining, I grab my friends and we can go shopping down one or all of the strips that we have. You're definitely not going to leave here without bringing home a souvenir or two since there are so many shops. If you like to shop, then this is well worth it. You can then stop and have some lunch at one of our small cafes or large restaurants depending on how hungry you are. I cannot imagine leaving this wonderful city. I don't think I ever want too. Come for a stay and find out just how great it is.
