Have you heard? Heymama is launching a chapter in San Francisco this month! To welcome our new members—and entice other heymamas to vacation on the West Coast—we’re presenting an in-depth weekend guide to scenic Marin County, just over an hour’s drive from the Golden City. Your local experts: Courtney Leary, Cynthia Pillsbury and Jen Lane, the trio of mom founders behind Oliver Guide. (That’s Jen pictured above with her son, Jack.) Launched in 2017 and based in San Francisco and Marin County, Oliver Guide is a platform for trading travel recommendations with friends and other likeminded adventurers. Start packing!
We recommend flying into San Francisco International Airport, which allows you to cross the stunning Golden Gate Bridge en route. (Oakland is an alternate airport option, but the area tends to get snarled in traffic.) Since Marin comprises several small towns, you’ll need a car—or car service—to really see the sights.
