Things to do in San Francisco

Saturday, June 12th, 2004 | San Francisco

After spending part of the afternoon today exploring with Kevin I decided to add a section to my blog for ‘Things to do in San Francisco’. Every so often I spend the weekend or evenings doing things in the city that I’ve never done and figured I’d share…

So the recommendation for today involves a walk from the Castro up to the Randall Museum. This afternoon kevin and I walked up from our house to Courtney’s where we grabbed a couple of their handmade sandwiches, salads, and fresh squeezed juice. Courtney’s has to be one of the best kept secrets in the city – its a small privately run place where they squeeze their own juices from carrots, oranges, cherries, grapefruits, and all sorts of other things. They also make their own sandwiches, chips, salads and other stuff..

From there we went on a slow walk up Roosevelt street toward Corona Heights Park above the Randall Museum. Along the way we looked at the houses and the view. When we got to the park we hiked up to the top of the hill where the rocks are that overlooks the city. The views from there are AMAZING – you can see all the way from the Golden Gate Park Panhandle to Daly City. We parked ourselves up on a rock and ate our lunch and watched the view.


After we ate we hiked down to the Museum to check that out. The Museum is really a kids museum but I enjoyed it. They had lots of animals to check out – snakes, owls, turles, rabbits, frogs.. you name it.. The museum also had activities and lots of other stuff for kids..

At any rate.. made for a nice afternoon and something I’d never done … Worth checking out..

Yeah the Randall Museum is strange. Did you go to the mini train town in the basement?

Courtney’s: on my list of places to go when we’re there next month. Thanks for the tip, Pete.

Ah, the Randall Museum. I LOVE that place. That’s where I used to go if I just needed to “get away” on a bad day.
