A few things I like about Mill Valley include leaving my door unlocked, happy people who feel free to sing out loud, and reading the zany Police Blotter.

Growing up in Mill Valley we didn't even have a key to the front door. My mom would lock it from the inside and go out the back door (yep no key either) when we were going to be gone for a week or so. And that was just so the toddler neighbors wouldn't walk in while we were gone. Really!
