Explore Outdoor Adventures in San Francisco
Despite being a densely populated, large city, San Francisco and the surrounding areas offer residents and visitors a wide variety of outdoor activities year-round. If you’re not afraid of San Francisco Bay’s frigid water temperatures, you can enjoy a range of water sports: kayaking, surfing, windsurfing and kitesurfing. If you prefer to keep your feet on dry land, the Marin Headlands, located north of the city, is great for hiking and exploring the area’s flora and fauna. With more than 200 parks and playgrounds, San Francisco is home to nearly 4,500 square acres of green space, the most famous of which is the expansive Golden Gate Park.
