Asked by Marin_moving, Orinda, CA • Mon Oct 5, 2009
We have a 9-month old baby and are trying to decide where we should settle: Orinda/Lafayette or Marin. We have loved Marin so far but it seems you get more house for your $ in the East Bay, especially in the areas we are considering (Kentfield, Ross, Greenbrae, Larkspur). We'd like to spend roughly $1.5-2 mm.
We love the outdoors -mountain biking, hiking, tennis, skiing- and my husband is also a surfer/windsurfer. We are 40 years old and I want to be around other new mothers around my age (which I have found in Southern Marin). I want a community whose parents are actively involved in raising motivated, exceptional children, developing their talents, and promoting education. The So. Marin Mother's Club is very active which I like. I've also loved the huge range of Mommy&Me/child development classes in Marin: Bay Area Discovery Museum, baby yoga, music, etc. Finally, we want to be part of a family-oriented, close-knit community of friends which feels like family.
