There is so much to explore in Golden Gate Park, you could spend the whole day and still not see it all. Whether you're riding around on Scoot, renting bikes or walking, here are a few Insider-approved stops to amplify your journey.
Hippie Hill earned its name in the 1960s, when it became a well known gathering spot during the Summer of Love. Today, you'll find drum circles, Frisbee throwing, picnics and the best people watching around.
Conservatory of Flowers
The Conservatory of Flowers has to be one of my favorite spots in the city. The greenhouse and botanical garden is full of exotic flowers and plants from around the world. Oh, and bring your cameras. There are many photo ops and lots of Insta-worthy material.
de Young Museum
The de Young Museum brings many world-renowned exhibits to the middle of Golden Gate Park in San Francisco. Visit during their normal business hours or after-hours for Friday Nights at the de Young.
Japanese Tea Garden
The Japanese Tea Garden is another one of my favorite gems in Golden Gate Park. The garden will transport you to a village in Japan, where you can enjoy the natural calming beauty of the surrounding nature. With many native Japanese plants, koi ponds, and stepping stone paths, you'll leave feeling fresh and renewed.
Strawberry Hills offers panoramic views of the city, but the hike to the top will make you work for it. Walk around Stow Lake or make the trek up to the top - either way, the views are stunning.
If you're feeling adventurous after your tour of Golden Gate Park, head to Sutro Baths at the far Western edge of the city.
Marnee Thai and Nopalito
I'm sure you will have worked up an appetite after your Scoot journey in Golden Gate Park, so stop at Marnee Thai or Nopalito for a bite to eat.
