  • Cool building with lots of services. Normally I would say we get the government we deserve, but this place is great. Have been here for deeds, birth certificates, a death certificate, and the library. Also has the courts, and a farmers market (twice a week)!
  • Building is the work of famous architect Frank Lloyd Wright - docent tours are given weekly (check civic center website). Beautiful art deco lines. The library here is gorgeous work of art. Take the elevator to get to the library. Marin History archives are located there as well! On Thursday and Sunday morning (Sunday being the best) is the Marin's Farmers Market - get close and personal with Marin's local farmers and the produce produced! Fresh cheeses, veggies and meats - all local grown. Plenty of fresh food vendors and crafts to enjoy when there - Gotta luv it and a great way to enjoy a Marin morning with the locals! (The Marin Vista Retreat House is located just 3 minutes away and enjoys the Marin Civic Center as part of the view! (see marinretreat . c o m)
