Mount Burdell in the north and the Big Rock Ridge in the southwest encircle Novato with the Russian River and Lake Stafford providin g as principal and secondary water sources respectively. This beautiful town is blessed with warm dry summers and cool wet winters. The town is poplar for its taste in art and culture with the Novato History Museum and the Novato Arts Center. Novato is such a delightful tourism center that one can stay in exceptional and charming places, taste some of its great culinary, play in the outdoors and meet the friendly folks.
