With Smithsonian magazine recently , our little secret is out, and we should expect to see even more visitors than usual to our little enclave.
What destination spots would you recommend to friends or family coming into town? And if you were saving cash and doing a staycation, what places would you check out — possibly for the first time ever?
Here are our nominees for this week's Reader's Choice contest for visitor destinations and stay-cation spots. As always, if we've missed something, please tell us in the comments and we'll add it ASAP.
As you can see, we left out restaurants and bars because the list would get too long and we've focused on restaurants a number of times so far and will do so again. You'll also notice that it's simply spots within the 94941 - if we were to include the vast amount of outdoor delights in Marin, we'd be drowning in choices. Let's just pick from among this list.
Have fun showing some love for your favorite spot, not only with a poll vote (one per reader, please) but by leaving a great review and a positive rating on its Patch Directory page. Just click the highlighted names above to see the directory page for each place in the contest.
The poll goes away after a few days, but the positive reviews and ratings stay forever — plus they count heavily in the contest judging. So if you love one (or more) of our contestants, be sure to leave a rating and a review.
And if you own or manage one of the businesses in our contest, be sure to ; this allows you to customize the information that appears on our site, and to thank your loyal customers for the five-star ratings they give you.
Because this poll is not scientific, it is not the sole consideration in choosing a winner. The winner will be determined by the Patch editor, based on poll results, comments and reviews on the listings in our directory. Leave reviews for as many listing as you wish, but please vote only once per survey, per Patch. Complete contest rules are attached.
Here's your chance to tell share your recommendations. Vote in our poll and then visit the listing and give it a star rating. We will reveal our contest winner on Friday morning, so keep tabs on the Readers Choice contest all week long.
