Take a virtual stroll through the Marin Mommies Booth.
Marin Mommies is an online lifestyle magazine and guide for parents and families in Marin County and the San Francisco Bay Area. Our mission is simple: to provide busy parents with ideas for fun and fantastic outings, classes, events, and other things to do with the kids. Whether it’s the lowdown on local pumpkin patches and Christmas tree farms, our picks for great stroller hikes in Marin, California family travel destinations, where to play on a rainy day, or fun and healthy recipes to make with the kiddos, there’s something here or all families, whether they live in Marin or not!
In addition to our articles, you’ll find an online community event calendar, guides to Marin preschools, birthday party venues and entertainers, and local summer camps, as well as an e-mail newsletter that goes out to thousands of opt-in subscribers.
Founded by longtime Marin County residents and parents Pamela and Andrew Fox, Marin Mommies provides readers with unique insights into this place that we and our families call home. We personally experience and try out everything we review, offering our honest opinions and expert advice on activities, outings, and experiences for families in Marin, the Bay Area, and Northern California.
