Peninsula Travel & Outdoors
The San Francisco Bay Area is home to over 30 stunning beaches, both right on the Pacific Ocean, as well as inland. Explore dozens of beautiful Bay Area beaches, from great views to awesome hikes, and even to the perfect road trip pit stop.
Residents who would prefer to get some exercise outside instead of at a fitness club or other indoor facility can still enjoy workouts at some of the best outdoor tracks in the Peninsula, all of which have free access. While these outdoor tracks may not be available at all times due to athletic events associated with each facility, running and walking on a track is definitely far safer than on city streets and dirt trails with uneven surfaces.
While the Peninsula is not exactly considered a hotbed for hockey activity, there are plenty of great adult leagues that operate in Peninsula hockey rinks. Each league features teams whose members are based upon their ability, whether it’s a beginner or an advanced skater. Hit the ice!
California is known for its beaches but its Southern California that gets the credit for the most beautiful spots beside the Pacific Ocean.

These are some of the best family oriented beaches in the Bay Area.
