5 San Francisco Activities We’re Excited to Welcome Back this Season
There’s a sense of optimism in the air as San Francisco slowly opens back up. Indoor venues and activities are ramping up their capacities, while small outdoor activities have dropped mask requirements. As our favorite city opens more of its doors and moves into the final tier of its reopening plan come summertime, there are a lot of old traditions we’re ready to bring back. From activities you can readily do now to adventures that will return within the next month or so, here’s just a few of the classic seasonal activities that we’re ready to make up for lost time with.
Lay Down a Blanket in the Park
Now that fully-vaccinated adults are permitted to exercise and gather in small groups outdoors without masks, take this time to soak up the sunshine on the grass of Mission Dolores Park. Every summer, Mission Dolores Park can get a little crowded, but the foot traffic should be lighter this year, and with a bit of mindfulness and spacing out, allow yourself to breathe easier on your weekend picnics.
San Francisco is home to some of the most beloved museums in the world, and we’re eager to peruse all the amazing exhibitions coming up. Just this spring, the Asian Art Museum, Contemporary Jewish Museum, SFMOMA, and the de Young Museum have all reopened, and most of them are able to open to 50% capacity as of May. Art lovers, rejoice — because we know there’s nothing quite like experiencing art up close and personal. Be sure to wear a mask, as they are required in these indoor spaces according to city regulations.
Jump on the F-line
How long has it been since you’ve enjoyed a ride on one of Muni’s vintage streetcars? Lucky for us, after over a year, the F Streetcar line between Fisherman’s Wharf and the Castro will reopen on May 15 for all seven days of the week.
Hop on a Bay Cruise
SF Bay cruises are up and operating again. When the sun comes out, take to the water and return to that maritime spirit that rules the Bay Area. As of May, there’s limited capacity, mask requirements and as increased cleanings to ensure safety.
Feel the Vigor of a Sports Match
The San Francisco Giants are back on the field, and this month, capacity for fans has increased from 22% to 50%. With either proof of full vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of the game, fans can finally return to Oracle Park to show up and show out for our staple baseball team.
