Cast Your Vote for Best of the County 2021 — Your Picks for Marin and the Bay Area

Best of the County

Over the years, Best of the County has highlighted the best our community has to offer, from where to eat to beauty to outdoor activities.

We’ve done things a little differently this year. If there’s one thing we’ve learned from the pandemic, it’s that we’re part of a community. In that spirit, we’re opening up our voting entirely to you, our readers. In addition to that, we’re expanding our scope to include the wider Bay Area, so for each category, we’re asking you to cast your vote not only for the best of Marin, but the best of our whole community, including San Francisco and the East Bay.
