About Windy Pinwheel aboutWindy Pinwheel was created by two families who love to spend time with their children having fun and enjoy discovering new things in Northern and the Sierras region.

Both pairs of parents of our families grew up in Northern and are all graduates of the University of , Reno. We all moved away to explore the world and after some time, found ourselves yearning to raise our children in only one place, Northern .

We want to provide a resource for other parents in Northern to find activities to that are fun, educational and most importantly cost effective. We will review various family-friendly venues, provide information about great adventures for you and your children in and around the Northern region, including the Sierras. We will explore as far west as Sacramento, south as Topaz Lake, north as Pyramid Lake, east as Fallon, and beyond.
