Bay Explorers

  Bay Explorer is a guide of what to do and where to go to have fun with your family in the Bay Area. 

   Growing up a Bay Area native has given me the unique perspective on the in’s and out’s of Bay life. When I was younger I lived much of my life exploring the outside world with my family, friends, schools, and summer camps.

   Now that I’m a mom myself I spend every weekend exploring these same spots I visited as a child with my children.

   My goal is to show parents of all socio-economic backgrounds that you don't have to have a lot of money to show your kids a good time. You only need to be present and spend quality time with them. That's why I try to feature lots of low cost to no cost places and free events. 

   There is an endless plethora of activities, outdoors, and fun places to take your children to in this part of California where we live.  We are very fortunate to be raising our children here with so much to see and do! Hoping to inspire people to be Bay Explorers themselves. See you out there!

My vision is to inspire families of all backgrounds to explore, be present, and have fun with their children in the Bay Area.
