  • Neat place to bike through. The weather is usually chilly and breezy so I would highly recommend warm clothes. The scenery of the vegetation is pretty typical of the area with scrubby grass. The view of the of Golden Gate is great. Seems to be lots of people that walk and bike through the park so you probably won’t be alone.
  • My God son(Alan W.) treated me, his mom, wife, sister, mom-in-law etc, on a 2 hour Mother's Day Brunch cruise one of the Custom Ferries, and it was my 1st time ever, but I had a wonderful time with everyone. The food was top notch, the scenery once I was able to look out of the window😂 was beautiful, they had live music, and all the complementary Mimosas/coffee you could want with your all you could eat meal. A very memorable experience...
