San Francisco's Golden Gate Park is a beautiful urban oasis, expanding from Haight Ashbury to Ocean Beach. The park and recreation area offers many unique attractions, from world-class museums and nature centers to hiking trails, lakes, picnic groves and even a herd of buffalo. Impossible to explore in one day, this expansive green space also features windmills, a beach chalet café for dining, stadiums, an old-fashioned carousel and playgrounds. Stroll through the Japanese Tea Garden, and see inspiring art at the de Young Museum or check out the California Academy of Sciences science museum.
