Scenes of the City: Golden Gate Park

The days may be shorter but the city is warmer and this weekend is promising temps in the upper 70's (finally!).

A San Francisco summer day is best spent in our crown jewel of Golden Gate Park where you can walk, bike, skate, picnic, play, and laze the day away. There are endless secret spots to stumble upon and you could spend years exploring and never see it all. 

Need inspiration? Here's how some locals and visitors spent last weekend in the park.

Scenes of the City: San Bruno Mountain State Park

It's in the corner of your eye as you're headed to the airport–the ridgeline dotted with radio towers looming as you drive south. San Bruno Mountain State Park is a sprawling ridgeline of trails and roads that takes up 2,326 acres along SF's southern edge.

Escape from SF: Anderson Valley

Drive 100 miles north up Highway 101, then veer west toward the ocean on Highway 128 and you'll find Anderson Valley. It's a place to escape the crowds, channel your inner cowboy, sharpen your wine knowledge, and see more stars than you have in a long time. 

Scenes of the City: Sumo Wrestling in Japantown

Sumo wrestlers from all over the world convened in San Francisco's Japantown this weekend for a series of exhibition matches.

Sunday Outside Lands photos: Furry Hats, Food, Wine and More Food

If you thought the party would slow down on Sunday in preparation for the upcoming week, you were dead wrong. Outside Lands continued in a fervor with an abundance of food, wine overflowing, and the foggy weather brought in an array of odd hats. Mark your calendar for next year's Outside Lands 2013!

Saturday Outside Lands: Crowds of People, Fog, Food, and Music

Check out photos of Saturday's Outside Lands. Craziness, arrests, drinking, huge doses of music and, of course, the beautiful Golden Gate Park scenery.

Friday Outside Lands Photos: People, Fashion and a Kickin' Good Time

Check out some shots of Friday at Outside Lands, lots of dancing, smiles, foggy and chilly weather, and good times were had. Check back tomorrow morning for more pics from today.

Scenes of the City: 4th of July in Bernal Heights

No matter where you spent your 4th of July in the Bay Area, you were in for a spectacular show. Here are some shots from Bernal Hill with a nice view overlooking the city. Where did you watch?

Scenes of the City: Electric Bike Shop in Bernal Heights

Brett and Karen Thurber opened The New Wheel, an innovative ebike shop in Bernal Heights, this past March. The shop features a variety of pedal assist bikes to help out with the many San Francisco hills. The "optimistic bike shop" was founded in 2010 in North Beach and features a full bike maintenance shop for conventional bikes along with electric bikes. They even have their own charging station (fashioned to look like a gas pump) at their sidewalk entrance. Stop by to meet Brett and Karen, and experience their excellent customer service and take an electric bike for a test ride around Bernal Heights.

Scenes of the City: America's Cup Preparation

With the arrival of several key parts of their new AC 72 (America's Cup 72-foot sail), Oracle is practicing in San Francisco Bay. We went behind the scenes at Oracle's giant Pier 80 complex to catch the latest America's Cup action happening in our backyard.
