Location, location, location! ~Baker Beach, San Francisco
Posted by Jody on July 27, 2012
Vacationers flock to San Francisco, California in droves. According to what I’ve read, somewhere near 16,000,000 people visit The City by the Bay every year! The iconic Golden Gate Bridge, Fisherman’s Wharf, Pier 39, the ever popular cable cars, and Chinatown are just a few of the top destinations for tourists and locals, alike.
Beach enthusiasts can add Baker Beach to their San Francisco must-do list. It’s a wonderful, wide, sandy urban beach, lined with uber-expensive homes and surrounded by million dollar views!
Although there are warning signs about the dangers of swimming or wading along this strand, there were a surprising number folks in the water on our last outing. The day Greg and I visited, the sand was dotted with happy families strolling, picnicking, and fishing. You’ll find a picnic area with tables, grills, and restrooms at the east end of the parking lot.
Be forewarned (or be free), the far north end of Baker Beach is popular with clothing-optional sunbathers.
