While the malls provide great shopping, from the Apple store to Nordstrom’s and Macy’s, there’s more to Corte Madera than shopping and easy access to the city. Civic organizations donate the flower baskets that hang on almost every lamp post in town, and coordinate the town’s blow out 4th of July Parade. Corte Madera is home to Marin/Scape, the annual art show that has raised over a million dollars for Buckelew Programs, that helps those with mental illness. Little Leaguers take full advantage of the spacious, well-tended parks and ball fields. Families have been enjoying the relaxed atmosphere and delicious Italian country cooking at Benissimo’s Restaurante since 1987.
