This past weekend, we escaped on bicycles for a 20-mile bike ride to the beautiful seaside town of Montara.
We recently went behind the scenes with the Port of San Francisco to get a peek at the Dogpatch's waterfront before the area gets a serious makeover. We toured the massive, 69-acre complex at Mariposa and 22nd streets–which is currently dense with historic buildings left over from San Francisco's industrial past. That includes 150 years of continuous ship building and repair. What you see today will look very different in a few years.
On any given weeknight, you can find a motley crew of bike polo players hanging out in the Mission at Jose Coronado Park at 21st and Shotwell.
You don't have to travel to Sausalito to be privy to a houseboat community. Most people don't realize that one exists within San Francisco.
We're guessing after a day of stuffing your face with turkey, watching football, and lounging around in a tryptophan-induced coma, you may need some fresh air in the great outdoors. Lucky for us, we don't need to go far to totally escape the city and the Presidio is the perfect respite from the hustle bustle.
Now that the days are getting shorter and more chilly, it gets harder and harder to get yourself to the great outdoors. But here in SF, we're damn lucky to have one of the nation's most vast parks as our collective backyard.
