San Francisco Botanical Garden

An Oasis in San Francisco
San Francisco is a great city for many reasons, one of which is all of the green space. It's easy to feel connected to nature here. When we planned to visit the Botanical Garden in Golden Gate Park, we didn't expect it to be such an oasis. It was a sunny day, and the big stretches of grass beckoned visitors to spend the afternoon lounging. Instead, we walked the botanical garden, admired the variety of plants, and let the kids run through "secret paths." A wonderful way to spend a couple of hours in San Francisco, especially on a nice day.

Admission is $7 per adult and $2 per child over 5 years of age. Street parking is available near the entrances, but it can be difficult to come by unless you get there in the morning.

This has to be one of the highlights of San Francisco, the San Francisco Botanical Gardens.

What makes the gardens unique is they have plant collections based on various climate conditions including the Cloud Forrest, Mediterranean, Temperate, and Montane Tropic climates. My favorite is the Succulent garden, which has an amazing collection of cactus and succulents.

The walking is wonderful and you can even visit a redwood forest in the gardens.

And next door is the Japanese Tea Garden, the California Academy of Science, as well as the de Young Museum.

Take a tour, you won't be disappointed.
