Although my cocktail camping lifestyle allows me to travel to fun and interesting places both in California and beyond, some of my most favorite adventures are in my adopted home town of San Francisco. I do love living in San Francisco! It’s an easy and gentle place with friendly people, instant access to natural beauty, and an urbane sensibility which means that a delicious cocktail or yummy snack is never far away. For all these reasons, San Francisco is a top tourist destination. As the CCC, I want to do my part to encourage visitors to come appreciate this wonderful place by sharing my favorite spots with you!
For many years, I have taken solace in the beauty of Stow Lake in Golden Gate Park. Developed in 1893, this man-made lake was created as an escape for for city-dwellers. During Stow Lake’s early days, the 3.5 mile path also served as a promenade for horse-driven carriages. It is a special place with verdant landscaping, romantic stone bridges, a 114-foot water fall, and a Chinese Pagoda. There are even rumors that the lake is haunted by the White Lady, a young mother who drown in the lake while searching for her missing baby. Perhaps most enjoyable is that the path around the lake is completely flat – a rarity in hilly SF.
If you are planning a visit to SF, there are many great resources to consult, and I am happy to be another! Feel free to contact me for ideas about your visit to San Francisco.
