The town of Tiburon (zip code: 94920) is located just north of San Francisco, in Marin County, California. It is accessible by ferry from downtown San Francisco, as well as by car from Highway 101 and Highway 131 (Tiburon Boulevard). Tiburon is a former railroad town that was the terminus of the Northwestern Pacific Railroad until 1963. Since then, it has been transformed into a charming seacoast village. Tiburon’s classic main street offers antique, wine, specialty shops and more. Bring your bike along and leisurely tour the shoreline paths or physically challenge yourself by hiking nearby Mt. Tamalpais.
