Fairfax is the perfect mix of business and pleasure. On the one hand, the downtown promises great restaurants, local theater, and delightful events including a summer music series beneath the redwood trees. On the other, the streams and lakes of Fairfax are home to the resurgent native steelhead trout, and provide ample opportunity for fishing, hiking, and biking.
Residents of Fairfax strive hard to maintain a small-town feel, and are committed to preserving the natural treasures that they enjoy. A local farmer's market brings delicious, healthful produce into the town, and an initiative waives permitting fees for all solar installations. Even the school is powered by solar, and every year residents turn out for the charming, 'human-powered parade.'
Those who crave outdoors pursuits will be thrilled to call Fairfax home. The winding roads around the town provide world-class cycling terrain. For those seeking more adventure, the trails await. After all, this was the birthplace of the mountain bike. With open-air coffee shops and a beautiful town center, you can't go wrong.
