San Rafael is the county seat and the largest city in Marin. There's an urban-suburban kind of mix here with an artsy and creative twist. The Farmer's Market is the 3rd largest in California. The town has all kinds of eclectic food choices, including Indian, Thai, Italian, Suchi, Mexican, and Puetro Rican. Soul Food, an iconic Puetro Rican restaurant, often has a line outside the door. You'll find interesting mid-century modern architecture in Terra Linda and Lucas Valley. Live music is at Terrapin Crossroads, founded by Phil Leash of the Grateful Dead. Marin's tech is based in San Rafael with BioMarin and Autodesk.
