Weekend in the City: SF Zoo + Pride!
While I anticipated an overcast weekend in the city, it ended up being a gorgeous (and plan-less) sunshiny Saturday and Sunday. After a late start on Saturday morning, we decided to make our way down to the San Francisco Zoo to check it out for the first time. I’ve heard mixed things about it from other residents, but was actually pleasantly surprised with their set up. Perhaps my expectations were low, but I thought it was a fun way to spend a sunny afternoon (and a good alternative to lounging at the park). Note: SF residents get in for $12 instead of the standard $15. Have your proof of residence ready!
While Saturday was rather impromptu, we had actually kind of made plans for Sunday. The Pride Parade was going on in San Francisco and there was no way that we weren’t going to at least check out the commotion. We ventured down to Market Street to watch all of the parade participants in their colorful garb. The theme (though I didn’t realize there was one), was ‘Global Equality’, which I assume was reflected in the floats that were constructed. Some snapshots from the day:
Sunday definitely made for some incredible people-watching, though making our way through the crowded streets was a bit of a feat. I have to say, there’s something awesome about living in a city that celebrates diversity at the level that San Francisco does. To see people being themselves, without reservation, makes me appreciate living in the US, and especially in this city.
Did anyone else head out to Pride in SF or another city?
