After a pretty moderate hike what would be better than riding a merry go round, I mean really? Tilden Regional Park is the Golden Gate Park for bay area folk who don't want to cross the bridge and ay the ever-rising bridge toll. Tilden has beautiful trails, a mini train, botanical gardens, a merry go round, and more. They also get an extra point for almost everything (the merry go round cost $2) being completely free! What a great day-cation.
