San Francisco, by ferry and bike to swinging Tiburon!

with No Comments
Of you go, by bike and ferry from downtown San Francisco to swinging Tiburon.

Which area: Tiburon on the bayside of San Francisco. Do you know that Tiburon was a former railroad town and that Tiburon means shark in Spanish!

How to go: Buy a ticket and travel from the San Francisco Ferry Building and catch a Golden Gate Tiburon Ferry heading to Tiburon. It departs from gate B. The trip takes 30 minutes before you enter paradise of the little town Tiburon.

What to do: Bike on the Old Rail Trail and have a picnic near the water with your own filled picnic basket and enjoy the view. Be aware of a dog named Max…he likes your picnic food!

What is the highlight? You have to visit the Hippie Tree. It's a must see! The selfie spot for influencers and the best spot for the epicurean.

Exercise: It takes some effort to visit the Hippie Tree. You have to climb a steep hill to find this great spot. But it's all worth the sweat and exercise. Swing on one of the swing sets and enjoy the incredible beautiful view over the bayside, downtown SanFran and the magnificent Golden Gate bridge.

Cooling down: After you climbed the hill, swinged at the Hippie Tree and biked back to downtown Tiburon, you might want to cool down. Have a nice glass of wine at the wine café Squalo Vino while waiting for the ferry that brings you back to downtown San Francisco via Angel Island.

More things to do: If you like the history of Tiburon you can visit the Tiburon Railroad and Ferry Museum at the waterfront at 1920 Paradise Drive. More a type of person exploring nature? Then you have lovely hiking trails in the hills of Tiburon. Or make a side step to Angel Island by ferry from Tiburon.
