Best Of Marin County 2019


This year we let you, the reader, tell us what you love the most in the county, and we opened up the ballots so readers could select any business or group they wanted in the categories of dining, entertainment, beauty, fitness and recreation, arts and entertainment, and shopping. Of these, dining and fitness and recreation drew the most voting; more than 1,000 votes were cast overall. To keep it fair for everyone, we’ve allowed a business to only win in one category. In the following pages, Christina Mueller gives colorful takes on what makes your picks the best in the county.
