Explore a coral reef, the Amazon and outer space—all in one day. Only at the California Academy of Sciences in Golden Gate Park.

“What to say? One of the great parks of the United States. Just head down the hill to Kezar Stadium (at the very bottom of Willard Street) and you'll see the GGP right beyond it (walk around Kezar to the west to enter the park).
