We're in the midst of the holidays and the calendar now officially says it’s winter, but this is the Bay Area and with more sunshine in the forecast, getting outside should be the plan (especially if you have time off from work!) If you’re willing to leave the City, the South Bay is loaded with some outstanding parks and gardens worth exploring.
