Marin is full of gorgeous outdoor settings to throw whatever Pinterest-perfect birthday party your heart desires. But… wait! What if planning a “Dress as Your Favorite Non-Violent Superhero” shindig is starting to feel too stressful? And maybe you don’t actually want to schlepp a bunch of homemade felt capes to the park? These places throughout Marin County offer the whole package—set-up, décor, and specialized themes—which means pure fun for them and (hooray!) no stress for you.

Miwok Stables

Any horsing around here is of the good kind—the stables offer a fun 2-hour Saturday party for your spring or summer birthday equestrians, with a tour of the stables, a horse demonstration, and a short riding lesson to teach kiddos how to correctly and safely handle a horse. (Maybe the next best thing to getting a pony?!)
