Pick up some fresh sandwiches from your favorite deli and head to the beach! Turn your weekend into a relaxing staycation dad will appreciate after a busy week. Baker Beach has some of the most stunning views of the Golden Gate Bridge. The beach is also a historic location, being part of the Presidio, which was formerly a military base. Walk up to the beach to the Battery Chamberlin to experience a slice of history dating back to 1904. After the walking tour, break out the beach blankets and chairs to settle in, picnic, and sunbathe.
