Is Petaluma Becoming The POOR MAN'S "MARIN"?

What do YOU THINK?

Maybe for some people it is....but after living in Marin and now in Petaluma I think they are very different places with different people. Personally I prefer the laid more gentle nature of Petaluma over the upwardly mobile conciousness of Marin. Marin is beautiful and I do love it...but money or no money I'd choose Petaluma living anyday!

How about not a poor man's Marin but a bedroom community for the commuters.

Petaluma has something for everyone...families, professionals, artists, and people choosing to live closer to the land. I love living here. I moved from SF ten years ago and have seen Petaluma emerge as a vital community. It just gets better and better. Best, Ingrid.

Petaluma's annual "Cholesterol Days" Parade would never fly in Mill Valley. I don't know if newcomers to Petaluma have any sense of the history behind the Sonoma Marin Fair, Butter and Eggs Days and references to "The Egg Basket of the World" and "Chickaluma". This was a farm town when I grew up -- in Penngrove. So were the towns in West Marin. As long as there are a few old-timers left, I think that former farm towns keep an attachment to the land that makes them a little different -- better, in my opinion.

Should have moved out of Burlingame long long ago to move to Petaluma. Petaluma has beautiful Victorian houses, interesting and historic downtown, the river, the movie house, the theatre, etc. It has everything.

Marin doesn't even have piano player for crien' out loud.
