Novato California Tourist Attractions

What’s going on near our Bay Area Independent Living Community?


Located in the North Bay region, in northern Marin County, is the growing city of Novato California. Residents and visitors enjoy the rich culture, reflections of history, and contemporary feel it has to offer. The city is a great place to vacation and with planning, you can enjoy many of the attractions that are in the original village defined town. And for residents of Deer Park Retirement Community, it’s all just a short trip from home!

Vacation plans can include many things but for most, seeing area attractions of the place visited or simply passing through is often on the itinerary. There are several attractions to visit but the following list may help you determine which fits into your travel plans the most.


Novato has the best hiking accommodations in the Bay Area. If you are adventurous and a lover of nature, dig into the natural ambiance of the surrounding hills, valleys, and marshlands. The city has many well-maintained hiking trails. View the birds and wildlife while climbing, as well as the amazing panoramic vistas.

Marin Museum of Contemporary Art

It is only appropriate that a place that is rich with culture, artists, and crafters has the best museums. The Marin Museum of Contemporary Art displays the work of both local and nationally accredited artists. You can enjoy new exhibits, classes, and educational opportunities all in one creative location.

Miwok Park

If you’re a tourist who wants to find a relaxing attraction, Miwok Park is the place (and it’s pretty popular with the locals, too!). Enjoy Bocce ball courts, a playground for the little ones, horseshoe pits, hiking trails, and picnic areas. The Martin Museum of the American Indian is also located at the park. A visit here will reveal the deep culture that Novato has and provide a look at artifacts and traditions of the Indian tribes that once occupied the town.
