From the late 1800s up until World War Two, it was sailors, railroad and cannery workers, fishermen and local dairymen who called Tiburon home. After the war, however, the real estate development and residential planning that would make Tiburon what it is today began in earnest.
Proud of its heritage, Tiburon works to keep its history alive. Evidence of this can be seen in the town’s well-known landmarks, including the Tiburon Railroad-Ferry Depot Museum, China Cabin, Old St. Hilary’s, and The Landmark’s Art & Garden Center.
As residents know, living a healthy, fit and fun lifestyle in Tiburon is easy to do:
The Tiburon International Film Festival, held at the Tiburon Playhouse, is a yearly town favorite. Late August brings the Tiburon Art Festival with live music, local artists and vendors, and wine from the nearby Windsor Vineyards. Check out other seasonal events like the Holiday Festival and the Tiburon Wine Festival.
With its unmatched views of the San Francisco Bay, tranquil demeanor, valued traditions, and active lifestyle, it’s easy to see why Tiburon is one of the Bay Area’s most sought-after places to call home.
