Rising Temps: Beat the Heat in San Fran with Trip Ideas from Family Entourage
By: Family Entourage
For a weekend getaway or a day trip to beat the heat, we love Cavallo Point. It's located at the northern end of the Golden Gate Bridge in historic Fort Baker, within the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. Close to San Francisco, Cavallo Point provides a quiet and picturesque escape. That's because it's nestled within 75,000+ acres of national parkland.
Our families enjoyed flying kites against the backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge and taking in the views on porch. It is also a great location if you like hiking, biking or running with more than 350 acres of trails.
If you're looking for a unique way to experience San Francisco Bay, then a kayak adventure with Sea Trek is a must! Take in scenic Sausalito by paddling through Richardson Bay along Sausalito's waterfront.
Taking the Oracle Park Behind-the-Scenes Ballpark Tour is epic. Home to 3-time World Series Champions, of course you get to see the trophies, stunning rings and themed memorabilia but our favorite is that you actually get to step on the field and take on the park the way the players and coaches get to see the game and fans. Plus you can sit in the dugout, we may have made a few calls to replay, bullpen at the press.
TRIDENT RESTAURANT: WATERFRONT FAV OF THE FAMOUS
Whether you are staying in Sausalito or just doing a day trip, a stop at the Trident restaurant is a must. Located on the bay, it has amazing views from every table and the food is phenomenal.
MUIR WOODS: TALLEST LIVING TREES IN THE WORLD
Check out the tallest living trees in the world — the Coastal redwoods. Immerse yourself in the dense forests at Muir Woods National Monument. It's one of the most popular tourist destinations in California with its 6 miles of trails.
SPINNAKER RESTAURANT: PERCHED ON PIERS
No trip to the Bay Area is complete without a stop at Spinnaker restaurant. For over 61 years, the Spinnaker has been a dining destination for generations of locals and visitors alike. An iconic restaurant perched on piers over the San Francisco Bay on the Sausalito waterfront.
