The unmissable and extensive Golden Gate Park (1,017 acres from the middle of the city to the Pacific Ocean) has a multitude of unusual and delightful things to see and do, this could keep you busy for half a day; The famous Bison paddock, the strikingly modern de Young Museum, the Japanese Tea Garden (keep in mind the spectacular sights of Cherry trees flowering in March and April), the California Academy of Sciences, and the Conservatory of Flowers, to name but a few. The beachfront has two windmills, there are at least two children's playgrounds (and a carousel!), polo fields and several lakes. This place has it ALL! For literature lovers; Shakespeare’s Garden has over 200 species of plants and flowers, with plaques associating their appearance within Shakespeare’s literary works, complete with a cobblestone walkway for added romance and serenity. Also home to the Golden Gate Angling club, there are 3 serene water areas not far from the Bison Paddock. Members are always happy to offer advice and tips to new anglers, should you wish to learn or practice your casting technique, free of charge! You can do all of this on foot, hire a bike or a segway! You could happily spend a whole day here. Photo credits Japanese Tea Garden: de Young Museum: Bison Paddok: Carousel
