    The quintessential gated community!

    Post Office outside gates - best and easiest to deal with if in hurry - never a line. !! ;)
  • R.
    San Quentin village sits outside the gates and has a cute beach! Also, history of a prison here goes back to the gold rush - when this was a 4 man prison cell!
