Picks for art lovers, runners and history buffs
ONE OF THE MOST scenic jogging routes in San Francisco, the Embarcadero is an unusually wide and flat stretch of sidewalk that hugs the city’s coastline for more than six miles. With the bay on one side, and downtown skyscrapers on the other, the views are hard to beat. For the full experience, begin your run at AT&T Park. The continuous path runs alongside vintage streetcars and takes you under the Bay Bridge, alongside public artworks including Cupid’s Span, and eventually past Pier 39 before ending at Fisherman’s Wharf. The only downside to this route is that it’s so popular; be prepared to share the road with countless other joggers, bikers, tourists and Giants fans on game days.
