10 Things I Love about the 94903 zip code

Growing up in San Rafael 94901, I didn't venture much into the Northern part of San Rafael except for an occasional trip to the bid "E" at Northgate Mall, a summer splash at the Terra Linda rec center pool and of course my annual adventure to the Marin County Fair.  In fact, as a SRHS Bulldog, Terra Linda was the rivalling land.  All that changed when I bought my first house in the early ‘90's in Terra Linda.  It was a mid-century modern home and the beginning of my new found love for the 94903 zip code. Over the last 20 years I have lived in Terra Linda and Lower Lucas Valley. The following are 10, of the many  things, I love about 94903. There are so many more...what are your favorite things?

1: The Weather: The days start out cool, warm up nicely and the afternoon breeze comes in faithfully to keep the nights comfortable. Great place to have a pool!large_pool_815_appleberry_dr._hilary_davis_realtor_448
