    Just inside Golden Gate Park on the north side, where 6th avenue hits Fulton, is the 6th Avenue Skatin' Place, where every weekend afternoon the roller skates and costumes come out and the disco cranks up. Pretty hard to beat for a post-picnic people watch...

    Really cool place to bring the family. Brought my 13 year old cousin here and she and I loved it. The indoor rainforest is so cool because you're walking right next to the wildlife with so many beautiful butterflies and birds flying around you. The aquarium has some really cool fish as well including an octopus! And the planetarium is ...

    I really enjoy going to the De Young Museum they always have interesting exhibits. I particularly enjoy how they will have curator talks for some of the special exhibits. Also, if you're going on a Sunday check out Lindy in the Park that is happening right around the corner from the De Young. There's usually a great crowd of dancers ...

    18 reviews

    Adults only time at the California Academy of Sciences, with booze and everything. Get a planetarium ticket early if you want one. We saw a really trippy math visualization presentation. It's a fun place to visit in general.

    Huge arboretum. Just amazing to walk through in the summer. A little pricey if you're not used to paying for arboretums (like me), but worth it, honestly.

    Stow Lake

    Really cool to walk around. Some people take paddle boats, but the lake seems a little big for that to be a good idea. Can sit by the side and eat a picnic, but DO NOT feed birds until you're almost done and ready to leave. We watched several families look like they were going to be an Alfred Hitchcock ...

    Beautiful in every season this garden helps make Golden Gate Park special. The flowery lanes are well groomed with inspiring views around every bend. I love the native plant section and all the water features. It's a perfect green getaway in the middle of the city.

    What a great way to observe these gigantic beautiful animals. The conservation efforts that have brought these animals here are amazing. It can be hard to see them sometimes, but a walk around the fence can provide you with some great views.

    I have been here twice once for a a free Dave Matthews Concert and it was great. They know how to handle crowds and only problem is no parking so take transportation. I also came here when there was not a concert going on and it is a massive place with lots of place to walk around.

    The Balboa Theatre is my favorite place in the city to watch movies! The old-timey charm and great variety of first-run movies and arty special screenings keeps me coming back. The popcorn seasoning station, complete with hot sauce, brewer's yeast, and flavored salts, is the best in the city too. A recent upgrade to the squeaky seats is a welcome ...

    Shakespeare Garden

    I'm a little hesitant to write a review of this garden, since I love it when I get the entire garden practically to myself. It's right by the Academy of Sciences, but most people walk right by the entrance without realizing what's inside. Follow the brick path and you'll find over 100 flowers, plants, herbs and trees mentioned in Shakespeare's ...
