April Top 13: The Importance of Getting Outside
There’s nothing better than getting outside on a nice Spring day. Here are our Top 13 favorite things to do in Spring:
The 5.3 mile Ohlone Greenway begins in North Berkeley and ends in Richmond. It’s flat, smooth, and green: perfect for a sunny day bike ride.
Sitting atop a hill in the Pac Heights neighborhood, Alta Plaza Park has amazing views of the city and is less crowded on beautiful days.
Sometimes there’s just not enough time to make it all the way to the beach – this miniature beach in Aquatic Park Cove can do the trick.
Just a little southwest of Baker Beach, China Beach offers the same spectacular views of the Golden Gate Bridge, without the crowds.
There are few places better on a sunny day than Golden Gate Park. The roads are blocked off on Sundays so rent some skates and enjoy.
Fort Funston is heaven for dogs, but great for people too. If you’re brave, it’s a perfect place for stargazing but bring flashlights!
Breaking for lunch, or just enjoying the nice weather, the South Park Playground is great. Plus, there’s a giant bungee hammock!
Elusive but totally worth it: the Open Top San Francisco Street Cars can be seen on sunny days around the Embarcadero.
Kayak Connection has kayaks for rent, and guided tours of the beautiful Moss Landing. It’s the best way to make new friends with the seals, sea lions, jellyfish and sea otters that call it home.
For an easy hike with views of the ocean hit the Land’s End trail!
Spark Social SF is great on the weekend for lunch, or book a fire pit complete with s’mores supplies. Check out their events, including free s’mores Mondays!
Grab your favorite cone of Bi-Rite Ice cream and a blanket, for the always interesting Dolores Park. Get there early on a nice day, it will get crowded!
