5 Ways To Celebrate Earth Day In San Francisco This Year

The Editors | April 16, 2021 | Lifestyle Feature

Here's our list of some of the best things to do on Earth Day 2021 in San Francisco, including outdoor activities for kids and the whole family.

Head to Baker Beach

When the sun comes out to play, the beauty of Baker Beach beckons. Nestled between cliff-side mansions on the left and a stunning view of the Golden Gate Bridge on the right, it's the kind of California scene that makes you wonder how it's real. The mile-long stretch of sand is perfect for sun bathing or reading. Some people even fish here. It's not the best spot for surfing, but body surfers will enjoy the ride. Keep your eyes open for marine life swimming close to shore, and if you feel adventurous, take the cliff-side hike up Coastal Trail.

Go on a picnic

Market Street’s Canela Bistro & Wine Bar offers a variety of prepared picnic kits, DIYs and experiences to choose from. From its family-friendly Movie Night Pack to the delightful Cheese & Wine Experience, the Spanish restaurant has an option for everyone. For a homemade, gourmet taste of Spain, try one or all of its three paella kits. Canela also offers customizable add-ons and wine pairings with each kit.

Rent an RV

Living Vehicle boasts its own long-term sustainable power source by Volta Power Systems (including the ability to export high-voltage power to charge an EV tow vehicle) and thus the ability to go off-grid for days or weeks on end. “Our customers value the flexibility to avoid RV parks and stay anywhere with all the luxury comforts of shore power,” notes Joanna Hofmann, CMO and co-founder of Living Vehicle. And with amenities like spa-style bathrooms, poshly appointed bedrooms with skylights and even an optional chef’s kitchen, it’s obvious why this 2021 launch is raising serious interest among eco-conscious road warriors. No matter which of this new breed of RVs you select, one thing is clear: Road tripping will never be the same again.

Grab a bite from Garden Creamery

This shop serves an extensive menu of 100% plant-based options, all inspired by Hawaii. Standout selects such as Thai tea, orange creamsicle and spiced chai make this local spot a go-to for those craving something different.
