Make sure to bring snorkel gear. I also recommend hiking up into the hills on the numerous trails throughout the park, where you’ll find interesting ruins and petroglyphs. Head back to Cruz Bay for dinner and drinks. Many of the best restaurants are right across from the town’s main beach, where you can wander off for a nighttime stroll. —Adam Bookbinder, creative director

Sutro Baths, Golden Gate Park

Sutro Baths, Golden Gate National Recreation Area, California

Sitting in the northwest corner of San Francisco are the beautiful and eerie ruins of the Sutro Baths. Built in 1894, this public bathhouse saw its popularity decline during the Great Depression before most of the structure burned down in 1966.

Although the site itself is not maintained, visitors are free to roam, climb, and explore the concrete ruins, all while enjoying views of the Pacific Ocean against the Marin Headlands. Be sure to check out the sea cave just to the north of the ruins and the great hiking trails in the surrounding area. —Katie Fish, fashion assistant
