Living in the Bay Area offers an endless amount of things to do and places to see, and summer is the perfect time to explore any interests you don’t have time for during the school year. Living in such a diverse place can be overwhelming, so the Daily Clog is here to help. Whether you’re looking to get away solo, want something to do with your friends, or are hoping to take your partner somewhere special, The Daily Clog’s Guide to Bay Area AZ Date Spots is perfect for you.
Today’s appointment is the classic art gallery. While there are countless choices in the Bay Area, our recommendation is the Minnesota Street Project – an indoor gallery with a variety of exhibits, this gallery offers the perfect opportunity to see many different artistic styles. Each room highlights the work of a different artist with a specialist present to answer all your questions or discuss the work with you. Especially on those sweltering days, this air-conditioned venue can keep you busy for hours as you hop from room to room. With no entrance fees, this place is also ideal for those living on a real student budget.
Although the Minnesota Street Project is located in San Francisco, transportation there is fairly straightforward. By car from the UC Berkeley campus, it takes about 45 minutes, and the area has plenty of free street parking. If you prefer to travel by public transport, expect to arrive by BART in about an hour and 15 minutes, with an additional eight-minute walk. Anyway, this meeting place is relatively accessible compared to other places and definitely worth the trip.
After walking through the arcade you might be looking for something to eat or drink, and the town is full of options. Directly across the street is a cafe perfect for a cold drink or a sweet treat. With plenty of indoor and outdoor seating options, you’re sure to find a place to rest. Alternatively, you can take your drink to go for a walk in the hills of San Francisco. If you’re looking for dinner options, there’s no shortage. We recommend heading to the nearby Mission District for an array of choices from Mexican cuisine to rotating Japanese sushi. Everything you could possibly want is sure to be close by, and it could be the icing on the cake of your artistic pursuits.
If you’re looking for something to end your day, Mission Dolores Park is just around the corner. Strolling from the Mission district to this relaxing park is the perfect way to unwind before heading home. Mission Dolores Park is a great place to people watch, relax, or just hang out with your pal. Plus, if you time it right, you might be able to catch the beautiful sunset from this peaceful spot.
We hope this inspires you to bring out your artistic side and explore new things in the Bay Area. Summer is the perfect time for new adventures, and we’re glad you’re going!
