Corte Madera, one of the “Twin Cities” along with Larkspur, stretches from the Bay on the east side to Mt. Tamalpais on the west. A small thriving community 12 miles north of San Francisco, it is generally sunnier than its neighbors to the south and is perfectly located within hiking, biking and driving distance to Marin’s many beautiful sites. At the base of Corte Madera is Christmas Tree Hill – named because the lights in homes on the hill leading to Mt.Tamalpais create the shape of a Christmas tree when lit.
Corte Madera is home to both The Village and the Town Center shopping malls, two major destinations to relax and enjoy coffee and have the kids play as well as getting your shopping done.
