SEGWAYING TOUR THROUGH GOLDEN GATE PARK

Believe me when I tell you, you haven’t lived until you’ve ridden a Segway. A few weeks ago, I took my lil boo on a Segway tour through Golden Gate Park for his birthday. This was our second time so we were excited for the longer ride and more challenging terrain.

I’ve lived in the Bay Area my whole life and this was my first time really getting to explore Golden Gate park. We took our tour through the Electric Tour Company. Their adventures are great for locals or tourists and their guides are full of interesting facts and helpful hints about San Francisco. For example, did you know that Golden Gate Park is the largest urban park of it’s kind in the U.S.? 5 times the size of New York’s Central Park? Neither did I!

BOTTOM RIGHT: A greenhouse made of wood and glass, left over from one of the world’s fairs?  I can’t totally remember but I know they have a corpse plant and venus fly traps on display inside so it’s definitely worth the checking out. ABOVE: The highlight of the hike ride (…?) was when our guide brought us to this stunning waterfall. The waterfall came out of the side of a hill and flowed into a pool that dropped into the lake. The huge flat stones (LEFT) formed a walking path to cross the pool, which was about 30 feet wide – you can’t tell in either of my pictures
:{  I was shocked at the size of the waterfall when we walked up, it was so big. There was a bridge near the top we were able to walk across for amazing selfies with a waterfall right behind us. The weather was kind of against us that day and it rained on and off but they were nice enough to let us borrow jackets and gloves.
