Don't bother, keep driving and go to Petaluma. One good restaurant, Grazei, one good bar, deBorbas and that's it.

but I found a lot to like in Old Town Novato like visiting the thrift store and a wonderful antique shop, the Mi Pueblo Mexican restaurant and the Trek winery. I hope to review them separately.

The old town area is a small stretch of older shops, restaurants and bar that has a mixture of older businesses that have been there for a long time and some new and interesting businesses mixed in. There is an art painting studio that looked like fun. The day we visited there was a street farmers market set up along most of the Main Street section with a live band, farm fresh foods, pony rides and a lot of vendors selling their items. It was a fun and active scene and good to see this small town with that much activity in the older part of town.

The Old Town section of Novato is really fun to visit. A really wide variety of shops including restaurants, clothing stores, a great shoe store (Mara's), gift stores, things for your home, a paint store, an antique store, a saw shop, a book store, ice cream & candy, and more. All the really cool things you might find in an old timey small town with newer stores too, like Whole Foods. We park at one end and walk the full length of both sides of the street looking at what is new and chatting with store owners. This is how a community downtown should be. We love it!
