Flower Hunting in San Francisco Trails and Parks
Mar 21, 2013 - It is true that when it comes to seeking out the flora and fauna of San Francisco, not many men would take it to task to seek them out. If they are there, out comes the cameras and they will start snapping away. If there aren’t any, the world moves on.
The thing is that there is something truly serene about looking at plants and flowers...a sense of tranquility and being one with Mother Nature will naturally take over your soul and spirit...and sometimes, in the busy world that we live in today, that is who we should be identifying with. Whether one is a teenager busy with basketball games or eighty years world who has been there and done that, exploring the flowers in parks is a very satisfying and fulfilling activity. Suffice to say, it is not enough to just be able to identify the Poppy, which is the state flower, by the way.
For those who will be doing some flower chasing over spring, as the weary winter weather withers down, here are interesting San Francisco charter bus rental attractions and places where you can find an abundance of blooms and plants.
One of the best spots for wild flowers would be Chimney Rock Headlands and it is best done as spring approaches. There are more than twenty different species in one place which is sort of rare unless you are in a man-made park where the growth is monitored by experts on a daily basis. Here, everything that you see is in its natural state, quite untouched and extremely serene. Accordingly, the place is often engulfed with the aromatic flowers of the poppies, checkerbloom, and blue violets kind. If you get lucky, you might spot a mule’s ear or two.
Fans of forget-me-nots in San Francisco should not miss the chance to take the rented San Francisco charter bus for a quick visit to San Francisco renowned Sky Trail. Take a trek up and around the trail and discover a whole sea of forget-me-nots that is sure to leave a lasting memory for you...not to mention, your camera’s memory card. The forget-me-nots are often there during the early spring days but sometimes, they make an appearance a little later in April.
Charter bus rental visitors who are otherwise simply enraptured with the beauty of ANY type of flower should try visiting Palomarin which has a coastal trail that leads past Wildcat Camp. Word has it that the wild flowers here are almost as gorgeous and in abundance as Chimney Rock.
We hope you will have a splendid time taking pictures of and simply enjoying what nature has to give you in the form of these amazing flowers.
Do Something Different This Valentine’s Day
Jan 29, 2013 - With Valentine’s Day cropping up, we are pretty sure lovebirds out there are trying to decide on what to do on that special night with their loved ones. With San Francisco charter bus rental, there are many fantastic events all over the SF streets every year...and this year, it is no different. Here, we will outline a few lovely events that you might want to be a part of.
Bringing the love to the streets of San Francisco
Last year, the Valentine’s Day Dash’s 5km run was an incredibly successful one, seeing that throngs of people came with their kids, family and friends for the time of their lives. There is nothing like gathering together with your loved ones and have it out on the streets during the 2013 Love ‘em or Leave ‘em Valentine’s Day 5K dash which is going to be held at Green Lake Park in Seattle on Feb 9th and once again on the 10th at Golden Gate Park. It might sound a little off for couples to run for Valentine’s day but let’s just say that when a couple share the same interest and take care of each other’s health, it is love, alright. So, it is time to dust off your running shoes and run for love!
Doing good on the day for love
Every year, the community gathers together with their San Francisco charter bus rental vehicle at the annual Heroes and Hearts and Hearts After Dark event at the San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center for a good cause. The event also is a way for the locals (and tourists, if they are there during that time) to raise awareness for the charity event that celebrates the people who plays an important role in providing support to each other. This year, 2013, the non-profit event is going to be held on Valentine’s Day itself at AT&T Park. Come join hands and have some fun together during Valentine’s Day and we are sure you will bring home more than just good memories with you.
Stories of unrequited love
Still unsure about what to do with the San Francisco charter bus? You don’t have to be a couple to enjoy listening to jokes (well, they are real life stories, by the way) about love that never happened, shouldn’t have happened or love stories that are simply too bizarre. The show is going to be held at the DNA Lounge on Feb 10th, 2013 and the lineup of comedians and protagonists seems rather impressive, thus far. The tickets are flying off the shelves so, be sure to grab them quick.
When in San Francisco, do what the locals do
San Francisco is, doubtlessly, is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world ranking 33rd as one of the 100 most visited cities in the world. And who can blame the tourists for loving San Francisco? We all do! Apart from the many landmarks and historically-significant attractions that you can find listed in tour websites, there is something unique and special about San Francisco…a very special charm that you cannot anywhere else in the world. All thanks to the contribution from the migrants who have now come to call San Francisco home. But if you want to make the most out of your time here, always choose to use a charter bus San Francisco package.
When you are here with our charter bus San Francisco vehicles, it is almost a must to head over to Fisherman’s Wharf, a highly popular tourist area where you can find the best Dungeness crab ever. And in case you are wondering, yes, the fishing industry here is still active and thriving. For more cultural things to do, we reckon a tour of both San Francisco’s Japantown and Chinatown is an absolute must.
Without a smidgen of doubt, when you are here, you have to do what the locals do – beaches and parks, of course! The Golden Gate National Recreation Area is incredibly gorgeous so, make your way there if you are a nature lover.
