The West Coast begins here. What used to be an Early to mid-1900's tourist area now is riddled with apartments, condos, native California Cypress trees, (thank God). The memory one retains is the expanse and the image of the Pacific Ocean shaking hands with the...More

Our friend's widow asked us, his close buds, to join her for a reunion at the same place where we gathered 10 years ago to "celebrate Ed's life". It was a nice occasion but what's important for this review is the venue, Sutro Heights Park...a...More

See the edge of the world. View the ruins of the largest bath house on the West Coast, get there easily by bike, car, bus. Wear sunscreen for wind and sun, you can burn in the SF fog too. Bring a jacket, wear layers.

Sutro Heights is a great place to get away from it all. You can wander through grounds of Adolph Sutro's estate and work your way over to ocean view and soak it all in. Displays tell you a little about the man and the site....More

When we visited San Francisco in June, we spent some time at Sutro Heights Park and it is well worth a visit. We had visited Golden Gate Park and just headed a little north along the coast to reach Sutro Heights Park. It offers beautiful...More
