    For you exercise addicts the three mile Mission Boardwalk is the place for running, rollerblading, walking, biking and people watching. Only the strong will survive.

  • 7. Sunset Cliffs

    A perfect way to end the day or weekend is to drive to Sunset Cliffs. Sure ...you've seen sunsets before. But there's something different in watching a sunset while your within feet of the ragged edge of the cliff and waves crash beneath you. Need I say ....bring your camera?
