    Going for a walk is always nice, be warned though the closer you walk to cliff house the more liable you are to find broken bottles and needles

    I'm a bit beach-spoiled since I grew up here, so Ocean Beach is a little boring to me! But it's a short hike to some more picturesque spots on Land's End.

    Just walk around on the boulevard and just soak in what all the people are doing there on a sunny busy weekend evening. It's soo funny to just watch everyone here :-)

    Bring all the sweaters you own. &/or snag a fire pit. Be careful, your clothes will smell like smoke!

    Come watch the sunset, walk along the shore. If you like taking sand dollars or shells, think about picking up trash for a change :)

    Always check the weather before you get here. Ocean Beach is amazing on a sunny day, but cold and windy on a cloudy one. My favorite drive in SF.

    Great beach for a run, especially at low tide. Clean and usually pretty deserted. The distance from the zoo to Cliff House is about 5k, so it makes for a good 10k run up and back.
