Gay urban "beach"
At the southwest corner of Dolores park, passed the hipsters near the tennis courts and the families by the playground, a natural grassy ledge (homo hill, the fruit shelf, etc.) rises, offering some of the most beautiful views of the city. Leave it to the gays to adopt this chunk of prime real estate. On a sunny weekend afternoon you'll find the area packed with sunbathers in speedos - just watch out for those "special" brownies and truffles being sold.
