Marin Mommies was developed and launched by Pamela Fox in January, 2007. A stay-at-home mom of two small children, Pamela grew up in San Rafael, and currently lives in Novato. It is her hope that Marin Mommies will be a place for moms (and dads, too) to come together to learn, advise, discuss, and share tips and resources with other parents in Marin and the San Francisco Bay Area—and anywhere else, for that matter. Much of the content in Marin Mommies is specific to the Bay Area and Marin County, but much will be of interest to parents everywhere!
Think of West Marin and you think of rolling hills and wild beaches, with some farmland, a few small villages and a lot of national parkland. And while West Marin contains more than half of Marin County's land, it is home to just 3% of the county's population.
The size of the retail sector is quite small. According to the West Marin Chamber of Commerce's business directory there are 14 retail stores in West Marin, with a similar number of places to eat and drink (for some reason this list doesn't include any stores in Bolinas or Stinson Beach).
My name is Sally (if that wasn’t obvious already) and I want to thank you for following me as I tour around looking for fun things to do in the San Francisco Bay Area. I’m going to be exploring the Bay – uncovering hidden gems as I go – and using this blog to document my experience.
I have so much fun bopping around from restaurants in the Bay Area to funky shops and boutiques that I decided it would be selfish of me NOT to share all of my experiences with the world.
Whether you’re a bored local or are planning on visiting San Francisco, my goal is for you to discover something new, fun and maybe even thought provoking to do in the Bay Area through this collection of blog posts.
Please note that I live in Marin County so I may be a little biased toward things to do in Marin and I’ll probably focus on more things to do in Marin County than anywhere else in the Bay. However, I promise I will be adventurous as I sally across the bridges and step over the county line on a regular basis. Knowing I have to document lots of lesser known fun things to do in the Bay Area will force me to try new things and get out of my comfort zone.
