While the first post office appeared in 1884, Tiburon did not incorporated until 1964. Surrounded by beautiful hills, downtown Main Street and views of the bay and San Francisco, it’s hard to believe that a place so rich in natural beauty and history could possibly offer more. But Tiburon does offer all this and more, in a vibrant community that is grounded in its past, enthused about its future and more than happy to spend its present on a picturesque peninsula jutting out into San Francisco Bay.
