  • Carneros Inn & Spa in Napa is a really special experience. Plus, I’ll do anything to position myself closer to the warm sugary donuts at their Boon Fly Cafe.

Summer is officially in the air here in Marin and that means plenty of trips to the pool, double scoop ice cream cones and outdoor movies in the park! Grab your blankets, pack a picnic dinner (complete with a nice bottle of rosé, of course) and head to the fun. Official start times for this is generally “when it’s dark enough to see the movie.” So, get there with enough time to secure prime real estate on the grass and settle in for some good family fun.
