Scenes of the City: Exploring Mission Creek's Houseboats

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.

Scenes of the City: The Warren Hellman Museum

Hardly Strictly Bluegrass may be many months away but, in the meantime, check out the Warren Hellman Museum, which pays tribute to the late and great founder of the festival.

Scenes of the City: The Presidio

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.

Escape from SF: Pinnacles National Monument

Just two and a half hours south of San Francisco sits an outdoor paradise, Pinnacles National Monument.

Scenes of the City: Golden Gate Park Part III

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.

Escape from SF: Point Reyes

On the western edge of Marin county is a beautiful National Seashore, quaint towns, great bicycling, camping, wildlife viewing and amazing hiking. Welcome to Point Reyes and the surrounding area.

Recently, we spent a weekend exploring the area and took some photos along the way. Escape up Highway 1 and be outside of the reach of the noise and hustle of the city within 1.5 hours.

Scenes of the City: Golden Gate Park Part Two

Our Indian Summer is holding on (hooray!), so take the opportunity to explore the vast regions of Golden Gate Park in all its sunlight-filled glory while temperatures still allow the best possible walking, biking, skating, picnicking, and playing.

Scenes of the City: Off the Grid's Food Truck Markets

They're everywhere, in every little nook and cranny that has room for food trucks to assemble. Off the Grid has exploded onto the foodie scene and is rapidly expanding.

Scenes of the City: SF Giants' World Series Victory Parade

Everyone either skipped work or school to be there, and there must have been thousands, if not hundreds of thousands at the Giants' Victory Parade down Market Street today.

Scenes of the City: Blackbird Guitars

We went behind the scenes at local carbon-fiber guitar company Blackbird Guitars to check out their process and get a glimpse into some local innovation and manufacturing.
