As I pack my bags for the East Coast once again, I conclude my summer adventures whilst retiring a temporary carefree lifestyle that will be missed dearly. Reiterating what I said at the beginning of this blog, the purpose of this summer was ensuring that everyday was spent wisely through adventure and comradeship. In addition, my plan was to discover the both hidden and not-so-hidden gems of my home, the San Francisco Bay Area (with the exception of a few out of region road trips), as I found it ridiculous that I had lived in such an organically beautiful, culturally diverse location my entire life without venturing further than the limits of my hometown. How could I rightfully call myself a Bay Area native if I hadn’t seen and experienced everything it had to offer?
I will now recap and unlock locations from both on and off the beaten path as a commemoration to one of the best summers I’ve ever experienced as well as a reference guide for you, the reader. This list hits every region of the SF Bay and the spots marked with “*”‘s have been reviewed in full detail on my blog previously if you wish for more information. Enjoy.
