San Francisco Golden Gate Park

8 May

First off, before I get into how much I fell in love with Golden Gate Park, I must say that the public transportation system in San Francisco is superb. Our City Pass allowed us to board anything in the Muni system and the trolleys. Each bus stop was clean, covered and included a digital display letting travelers know when the next bus would arrive. Compared to the dirty, uncovered benches in L.A. that I’ve only passed by the San Francisco system seems a lot better. We took the bus to Golden Gate park and back to our hotel with ease.

Anyway, on with the park! Golden Gate Park must be something similar to Central Park in New York, although I can’t say for sure because I have yet to visit New York! There is so much beauty in this park. From casual walking trails, meadows, lakes, groves and gardens there is plenty of space to take a walk and clear your mind. You can also visit the De Young Museum and California Academy of Sciences.

We and strolled around one of the lakes and hiked up Strawberry Hill. I love that there were people sitting on benches causally sipping wine! If I ever move to San Francisco I would pick a place near this park. I sensed the importance of healthy living and family in San Francisco. I observed mom’s walking with strollers, adult children walking with their elders.

If you ever visit San Francisco definitely block off a day to enjoy this park. Start your day with a walk then head over to one of the gardens and spend the rest of the day exploring museums.
