Things To Do In Marin County: Date Night, Brunch Spots, Dog Friendly Restaurants Marin

For years, residents in Marin County ventured off to San Francisco, Napa and other parts of the Bay Area when it came to date nights, meeting singles, nightlife and more due to lack of options nearby.

Most publications and guides focus on the other major parts of the Bay Area like San Francisco, Berkeley, Oakland, San Jose, Napa, Sonoma and the Peninsula overlooking Marin County in the North Bay.

In the past 5 years, there have been a number of places that have surfaced around the county as well as existing businesses that have catered to a growing younger demographic of customers as well as those eager to explore places around them that crave fresh food, more craft beers, quality cocktails and social environments.

As an online dating photographer and consultant, I have helped clients plan first dates to provide good first impressions. Here are a few of my favorite places around San Rafael, Mill Valley, Tiburon, Mount Tamalpais, Sausalito, Larkspur and West Marin for dates and meeting singles. Scroll to the bottom of the page for San Francisco, Napa and Sonoma date ideas.

Please note there are many places I recommend that are more unique, and romantic – these are exclusively available for clients.
