Once again my husband's company has changed his territory . He will be working in San Rafael Ca now. We are looking into living in Fairfax. It looks breath taking and a decent commute to San Rafael.

We are from the Midwest and have limited information on Fairfax.

Help please
Does anyone have information on Fairfax?
How is the town?
We have 3 kids in school so a strong community is very important to us.
The housing seems very expensive. Should we look in a certain area of Fairfax for less expensive housing?

Ouch, not Fairfax....

It is like a timewarp back to the 60's; hippies, drugs, and all...

Unless you like that kind of thing...

Although, your kids will find it groovy.

ps: Most people who work in Marin County can't afford to live there.

Unless your husband makes high end 6 to 7 figures, you'll need to look to live in Sonoma County and he'll have to commute. It is a horible drive.

On the plus side: Pt Reyes and Sam Taylor Park are very nice to go to with the family.

I can vouch for that. The Commander is perhaps the most normal chainsaw-wielding internet rabbit there is.

Now, some of those guys, Harry the Hare and Curt Cottontail come to mind, are REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, uh, not normal.

One town you might check out is Vallejo. It's got somewhat of a bad rep, what with some bad parts of it, but not all of Vallejo is crime-ridden. There's some decent neighborhoods. I would imagine. Plus, a nice downtown, ferry to San Francisco and a not-that-awful commute to San Rafael. The main thing is that it's one hell of a lot cheaper than Marin.

If you go north of Novato, to Petaluma, Rohnert Park or San Rosa, be aware of one thing. Hwy 101, pretty much the only way to get up there, goes from a four lane freeway to a two lane country road. After Novato.

And when you get out here, look me up. I'll get some cheap wine, and I'm always pretty flush with gov'ment cheese and crackers. Gov'ment cheese and crackers. Mmmmmm....

Thank you everyone. Novato is probably where we will have to settle. The hubs has to within a 30-40 min drive to San Rafael.
As far as Fairfax My parents were Hippies i enjoy that lifestyle minus the drugs. From what i had seen online i liked the charm of Fairfax . I was hoping to find a rental there but i think it will be just to expensive for our family.
Thank you again for all your advice.:)

Huh. Well, I'm just a stupid fricken cabdriver, and I'm affordin it. And believe you me, I'm not making high end 6 to 7 figures. Unless you're counting the figures after the decimal point.

I pay $950 a month for my rat hole apartment. So, if I work, say, 20 days a month, I would have to, hold on a minute, carry the zero...
