1 City 5 Ways: Active Traveler

The Washington Square Inn
Where to Stay // The Washington Square Inn
This cozy hotel is soothing after a day of exploration. Room 7 has views of Coit Tower on Telegraph Hill, a 284-foot climb if you want to hoof it up.
Golden Gate Bridge and Sam's Anchor Café

Morning // Bike the Bridge
There’s no better way to see the Golden Gate than by biking over it, and Blazing Saddles has been equipping adventurers for more than 25 years.

Lunch // Sam’s Anchor Café
A popular biker stop and bay area favorite since 1920, this café on Tiburon’s Main Street is just 50 yards from the ferries to Angel Island and San Francisco.

Angel Island and Crissy Field

Afternoon // Angel Island
The largest island in the bay, once an immigration station, is now a haven for bikers, walkers and kayakers—but not drivers. The island’s highest peak offers 360-degree views.

Early Evening // Crissy Field
Walk west from the Marina to Fort Point for unparalleled Golden Gate Bridge views. The path ends at a fence adorned with a metal “Hopper’s Hands” plaque.
