Bernal Heights

You may recognize Bernal Heights from all those Instagram photos of people on a tree swing overlooking San Francisco. Unfortunately, that swing has recently been taken down, but the view remains as spectacular as ever. A short hike (note: entirely uphill) from the Mission District brings you to a grassy peak at the top of this park where you’ll feel on top of the world. Lay out a blanket to take in the 360-degree views, made only more amazing when accompanied by cotton candy clouds at sunset. Bonus: this is a popular dog walking area, and if you’re lucky you’ll get to play with some pups while the sun goes down.
