Overview of Novato

Novato sits along the San Pablo Bay at the northern end of California’s Marin County, and is a city marked by its rural character and natural beauty. Overlooked by Mt. Burdell and dotted with parks, Novato is perfect for nature lovers, while also cultivating a strong, high-tech business environment.

People looking for apartments for rent in Novato can count on beautiful surroundings, great local wine and food and a friendly community.

Living in Novato, CA

Originally settled by Miwok Native Americans as early as 1300, the area around the base of Mt. Burdell has a long history, and residents can enjoy the distinctive architecture of past eras in Novato’s Old Town area. Officially incorporated in 1960, the city is now home to just over 52,000 people, according to 2010 U.S. Census data. Still invitingly rural with tons of open space, Novato today is a modern home to technical and medical innovation.

Residents of Novato apartments have access to a wide range of natural activities and diverse shopping options, while the city’s location at the edge of wine country also makes it a great place for dining and nightlife.

Novato Work and Study

College of Marin provides education to thousands of Novato area students every year, offering a range of degrees and career training. The Buck Institute for Research on Aging offers postdoctoral research programs and employs many scientists as a nonprofit biomedical research facility.

Businesses in Novato include Fireman’s Fund Insurance, whose Novato campus is the city’s largest employer, and shoe company Birkenstock, whose U.S. corporate headquarters is located in the city. Many tech companies call Novato home, including Disney’s ImageMovers Digital and videogame maker Visual Concepts. Extensive warehouse facilities also support companies like TravelSmith, a travel clothing catalog business.

Rentals in Novato, CA and Cost of Living

Although the relatively rural density may suggest a tough renting environment, around one third of Novato residents are renters, and it’s possible to snag a great place at a great price.

U.S. Census Bureau data showed the median gross rent from 2008 to 2010 was $1,444. Additional research found one bedroom apartments renting for between $1,200 and $1,925 per month.

Novato Attractions and Special Events

With extensive open space and parkland, as well as a spread-out population that gives it a rural feel, Novato is a haven for nature lovers. Residents can trek up Mt. Burdell or head to Olompali State Historic Park, two destinations that help comprise nearly 3,500 acres of outdoor space. Mountain biking, hiking, fishing and bird watching are all popular local pastimes. In the city itself, 27 parks provide plenty of room for relaxation, and it’s easy to head down to the waterfront for great views of the San Pablo Bay. Two public golf courses cater to locals who want to hit the links.

Located on the edge of California’s most celebrated wine country, Novato is perfect for wine lovers and foodies, who can check out local attractions, like the Pacheco Ranch Winery and the Marin French Cheese Company, or head to one of many great restaurants. Each year the city hosts the Novato Festival of Art, Wine and Music as well as many other festivals and regular public events like outdoor movies and the Downtown Farmers Market. Shoppers can head downtown to Grant Avenue or check out the Vintage Oaks Shopping Center. And with the world-class entertainment of San Francisco just 30 miles away, there is always something to do.
