San Francisco is packed to the brim with all sorts of activities, from museums to nightclubs and everything in between. But sometimes all you really need is some time away from the tourists and the hustle and bustle of the big city, and our nature expert, Neal Fishman, knows the San Francisco parks like the back of his hand. Follow this four day trip that will take you to some of San Francisco's most stunning and extensive parks that will make you feel like you aren't even in a big city at all. But still, we realize that you don't want to spend all of your time camping out in parks, so Neal has been sure to add in some great restaurants and bars, local spots, and must sees attractions as well. While this trip is largely budget friendly, there are a few fancier restaurants (like Gary Danko) that will reward you after a long day of city hikes. So if you are craving some natural beauty, take it from an expert and follow Neal's Featured Trip around town to the best parks, aquariums, view spots, gardens, beaches and more.
