My husband, a 5th grade teacher, is now on vacation for the summer. We celebrated the beginning of the season with a family trip to the San Francisco Botanical Garden, located in Golden Gate Park. Neither my husband nor I had been here before, so we were excited to explore. The second Tuesday of each month is free, so that’s when we went! Note that the garden is ALWAYS free for residents of San Francisco and San Francisco county.
If I were a city resident, I’d be here all the time! The gardens were filled with parents with children, enjoying picnics on the lawn or pushing strollers around the paved paths. Also throughout the garden, we came across individual musicians relaxing on benches playing their guitars, many foreign tourists strolling the grounds, and others of all ages enjoying the beauty of the plants and soaking in the warm weather.
