The lifestyle:


Casual and family-friendly, Novato has that small-town feeling without actually being a small town.

 

Novato backs up to farm country, and has thus absorbed some of that down-home charm residents in Northern California love, but it doesn’t take much for this neighborhood’s downtown and shopping centers to come alive on the weekends, or on Tuesday evening during the farmers’ market, or for the annual art and wine festival.
