Great restaurants, local microbrews, wineries, unique shopping, and a lively downtown combined with a beautiful natural setting make Novato a lovely community to live in or play in. Our outdoor activities include mountain biking, horseback riding, hiking, bird watching, swimming, and excellent golfing. For those looking for a more urban experience we have unique one of a kind shops downtown such as Five Little Monkey’s, A Closet Affair, All Season Soccer, as well as several great bakeries and restaurants. In downtown Novato you can do anything from taking scuba diving classes with Pinnacles Dive Center to getting a full spa treatment at Spa de Novato.
New and exciting additions to downtown, include the award winning Trek Urban Winery and Cooper’s Public Market, a small family owned indoor market selling sustainably raised eggs, produce, dairy, meats, cheese, honey and other staples all produced within 30 miles of Novato.
For those of you who prefer the chain stores visit Vintage Oak Shopping Center which features stores such as Sephora, DSW Shoes, Target and Costco.
