For this week's Scenes of the City we headed out to China Beach, a small cove in San Francisco's Sea Cliff neighborhood.This perfect pocket of sand features a picnic area, ample room for sunbathing, and on a clear day, great views of the Marin Headlands and Golden Gate Bridge.
In the southern end of Noe Valley the terrain transitions to the bluffs of Diamond Heights in a steep, rugged fashion. The home of great views of the city, a sweet rope swing, and some short but challenging running trails, Billy Goat Hill is a great place to explore on any afternoon.
We took an urban hike to Corona Heights Park right in the middle of the city to take in views of downtown, Sutro Heights and south of San Francisco.
