About San Rafael

San Rafael, California is known as the city with a mission. That mission is a bit of a play on words but also a hat tip to the city’s history. It was founded as a mission in 1817 and a hospital for the Central Valley American Indians. It has evolved since then, but the name, San Rafael, is for the Archangel Raphael, who was the healing angel. Therefore, it’s still a city with a mission.

The city is located in Marin County and the North Bay area of San Francisco Bay. Today, it has a population of over 57,000 and a vibrant economic and residential scene. The Mediterranean climate and proximity to outdoor recreation and other major California cities make it the ideal destination to work, play, or live in.

Production Space Options in San Rafael

George Lucas, you know the one, he’s responsible for the Star Wars movies, arrived in San Rafael in 1970.

  • Transportation

Pros and Cons of Production Spaces in San Rafael

There are pros and cons of production space in San Rafael that should be considered when you’re making a final selection of a city for your project. Carry on if none of these are deal-breakers.

Advantages

  • The weather
    That Mediterranean weather has been attracting people to the San Francisco Bay area for hundreds of years, and San Rafael offers all the best benefits that come with it. Enjoy the mild climate and sunny days.

  • Walkable city
    One of the things we love about San Rafael is that it’s a walkable city and bike-friendly. In fact, there are many green transportation initiatives within the city, making it a nicer place to live and work, and an easy destination to explore.

  • The views
    The geography in San Rafael includes rolling hills, and this means that you have views of the San Francisco Bay from many locations throughout the city. Add in the historic architecture and open spaces, and you have a city with fantastic views.

Disadvantages

  • Fault lines
    The San Francisco Bay Area is filled with fault lines and residents and visitors alike understand the risks that come with being in this area. The most common fault line in the area is a right-lateral strike-slip. This causes an incredible force as the blocks shift. However, not all earthquakes are major incidents.

  • Commuter town
    San Rafael has a bit of a reputation as a commuter town. The after-work entertainment options are a little more limited than in larger cities. There are still some options, but the young professionals in the population also head to San Francisco or other cities for a night out.

  • Expensive
    The cost of living in San Rafael is 45% higher than in other parts of the state. The good news is most of this is driven by the housing market. The bad news is that it can still be expensive to use production space in San Rafael.

Famous Locations in San Rafael

  • Mission San Rafael
    It would be odd to visit San Rafael without at least driving by the Mission San Rafael that the city is named for. The religious structure is on Fifth Avenue and is a small building by today’s standards, but oozes with so much of the city’s history. There’s a small gift shop located inside.

  • China Camp State Park
    China Camp State Park is situated on San Pablo Bay. It’s primarily used for hiking, scenic views, and mountain biking. The area was once a historic shrimp-fishing village of Chinese Americans, hence the name, who used the salt marsh for their livelihood.

  • Museum of International Propaganda
    It might be propaganda to put this on the list, but it’s unique and famous enough that it also makes the list. The museum includes political propaganda, posters, and memorabilia. There are 12 countries included in the museum, it’s a unique and interesting look at history.
