Visit downtown Novato and enjoy a leisurely stroll down historic Grant Avenue where you can peruse quaint stores and boutiques offering everything from upscale clothing and fine quality home decor to artisan food and antiques. Adults and kids alike will enjoy a treat from Powell’s Old-Fashioned Sweet Shoppe, or a scoop of refreshing handmade ice cream from the counter at La Michoacana.
Just around the corner from Grant Avenue, don’t miss the iconic City Hall – a well known local landmark. It began life as a Presbyterian church in 1896 and became City Hall in 1963, three years after the city’s incorporation.
The Novato History Museum is also located in downtown Novato, next door to the Tourist Information Center on DeLong Avenue.
