Dolores Park *

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.

    Must see, must visited
    I've lived here for 16 years and the view from the top of Dolores Park always gets me. Come on the weekend or any good weather day and sit on the first ledge towards the top of the park above the playground. You'll be surrounded by cute gays and their friends. It's our "gay beach"
